And why is it that England no longer have a bursary?
Is this better or worse than the England deal?
I think this is a little too late, the original pay deal should have been scrutinized to the small print before settling. The general public now believe nurses are on a high salary. I’m so dissapointed.
It’s a the same register so should be the same prices, not all nurses are on the top of their pay band so not much difference in wage.
They need to bring back the bursary, i was lucky enough to get this a few years ago when I trained, and did a part time job to top this up. Having a wage as such is not a good idea as this will probably be abused by other staff who will expect student nurses to work like a carer and not allow them to learn.
