    Hi, I am a first year student adult nurse. Unfortunately we are not paid for placement hours. Student nurses (& other students of other health care professions) normally earn some money with a 0 hour contract in care or similar.
    You will also be eligible to apply for a maintenance loan during your studies.
    I hope this helps & feel free to quote me if you have any more questions.

    No they are not.

    My uni is still part of the NHS Wales bursary scheme so offers childcare bursaries which would probably help!
