Nursing student numbers: should we panic yet?

Nursing student numbers: should we panic yet? Last year, the government scrapped the bursary available to new nursing students, arguing that this would create more training places by allowing universities to set their own fees and generate more income from nursing courses. However, more training places do not necessarily mean more trainees and critics suggested that scrapping the bursary would exacerbate the current shortage of nurses by deterring prospective applicants. Recently released UCAS data can help us assess the effect of withdrawing the bursary on student numbers. The King's Fund
