Yes.

If all placements weren't then I'd question why the student was still on the course.

I appreciate your rhetorical question. If the course makes students satisfied through allowing their character or abilities to develop fully, and taste the rewarding experience in the career etc, there would be always many students on the course. However, if it is for £5000, it would be tragedy.

That is my reason to raise the discussion here.

What I said can't be a rhetorical question as I never asked a question - I answered yours.

There aren't always a lot of students on nursing degrees. There's only so many on the course - a mix of how many are interested, how many have the grades/pass the interview, and how many can be accommodated in placement areas. People drop out for all sorts of reasons - for personal reasons, family reasons, failing academic modules, because it wasn't what they were expecting/what it was made out to be (although these were the ones who had no prior healthcare experience and I'm not sure what they expected).
Oh, and £5000 is just the bursary, there's the full student loan on top of that.

Your answer sounds good to me. Thanks, Emily_B

Is any one receiving long course loan money for being over 25 on a nursing course?
