 CURRENT INITIATIVES

Recruitment to Nursing Study & Funding Reforms

With the changes from the bursary system to student loans in Nursing, there is uncertainty in England as to whether these changes will affect recruitment. Since the changes were announced we have been undertaking a recruitment survey across the membership to monitor the environment.
