    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.

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