Consultation on funding for healthcare students16th September 2009
A consultation seeking views on how students studying to be nurses, midwives and doctors should be funded in their studies has been launched by Health Minister Ann Keen.
The consultation forms part of the NHS Student Support Review and will primarily seek views as to the best option for resolving the discrepancy of support available to degree and diploma students. Currently the NHS offers bursaries to healthcare students studying diplomas and degree level courses. The Nursing and Midwifery Council has indicated that the minimum qualification for new entry into the profession will shortly be changed to a degree.
