Nurses warn 'safe staffing at risk' under loans plan


As appalling the loans system is, it at least gives me a 40 year old the chance to do my nurse training. I have been unable to apply for the nurse degree simply because a s a single woman with no children, no rich husband or parents I could not make ends financially. Living basically in a modest house and my outgoings are £1250, just what I earn as a band 2 HCA. I would not be able to manage on a bursary of £400 a month. Hoping to pay of a couple of loans so my outgoings will be less, as well as doing another little job and so the loans system will be better in long run for me and others priced out of nurse training.
