nurses shouldnt even need to do degrees. loads of nurses i know with 20+ years of experience are much more knowledgeable and have a greater degree of common sense than the young nurses these days who go to uni. it's bureacracy for the sake of it, and didnt do nurses any harm back in the day.

It's ridiculous and a decision made by an idiot with a very bad record of poor decision making throughout his term. All due respect to the British public, they laughed when Donald Trump got in but the reality is this country's been led by money grabbing, anti social, bigoted little boys for the last four years. Anyway, charging the same fees for a nursing degree as you would for any other in any other discipline is actually counter productive. If you're going to be liable for the same debts once your programme is finished, then you may as apply for a programme which will bring you a better starting salary, a better employer and better prospects than working for the NHS. Not to insult the institution, I've worked for them before but it happened to be the hardest job I had, for the lowest amount of pay and this was because of the unpaid time I put in, their own policies and regulations, and a persistent problem with skill deficits and general motivation within teams. They'd save so much money if they reviewed their own sick leave policies and as a result, didn't have to employ so many agency staff. NHS has been interfered with by successive, stupid governments since its creation and it's a shame we've got so much further on, but still have such silly problems.
