Support for Nurses
All nursing students on courses from September 2020 will receive a payment of at least £5,000 a year which they will not need to pay back.
You can also access a further £1,000 if you plan on working in an area suffering from severe shortages, which includes mental health among others. Beyond this, another £2,000 is accessible in childcare allowances.
The funding will be given to all new and continuing degree-level nursing, midwifery and many allied health students from September 2020. It is expected to benefit more than 35,000 students every year.
