UNISON want your views on student nurse bursaries

  • Comment

The Department of Health has launched a major consultation on the review of the NHS bursary scheme for student nurses

UNISON is also conducting two surveys to accompany the consultation.

The first, in conjunction with NUS, is on financial hardship faced by healthcare and nursing students, the second is based on the Department of health Consultation.

If you are a student you can complete both surveys, if you have already qualified please complete the consultation survey and help us to shape the future of student support.

Both surveys close on 30 November so make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity to let UNISON know what you think.

UNISON have a one off opportunity to make changes to the scheme which will improve the experience of students.  The rate of attrition in student nursing programme is very high, the scheme has never been reviewed since its introduction in the early 1990’s.
