Nurses warn 'safe staffing at risk' under loans plan


I started my training 43years ago, I have to point out accomadation was not free, the cost was taken from your wages before you recieved them, meals were paid for as you ate them, my first months wages was 45.00. Day to day life was hard and often in many respects brutal, 4 weeks (later5weeks) holiday did not go far, we just dreamt of having proper student status.If students went back to an apprentice system it could never improve the profession nor will removing the bursary and NHS funding.
