Thousands more nursing associates and nurses to train each year, pledges Hunt


I am a mature student with 15 years experience working for the NHS. I have three children and my husband now has to support us all for the next three years. I am unable to work due to the timetable and placements including the whole of the school summer holidays. This means no more family holidays in the summer. I knew this before I started and thought long and hard before starting the course. I am already feeling very worried about how this is going to impact my family life. I am along with many others going to be in debt for the rest of my working life. Anxious times for everybody working for our wonderful hard working NHS.
