Student nurses drop out

9th April 2008

Figures have revealed that more than a quarter of student nurses in the UK dropped out of their courses during 2006, costing almost £100m.

Some courses had a drop-out rate as high as 56%, according to data obtained by Nursing Standard magazine under the Freedom of Information Act. There were 25,101 students who started degrees or diplomas but during the year 6,603 dropped out before completing the course, costing an estimated £98m. The government has said that it is working to try to reduce the drop-out rate.
