England's Nurses petition for Bursary help

A parliamentary petition calling for nursing bursaries to be reinstated in England after a huge drop in nursing applications has reached 13,000 signatures in a week.

Since the Government axed bursaries in 2016, applications for nursing degrees have fallen by a third and student nursing numbers have dropped by 11%.

There are currently 41,000 nursing vacancies in NHS England with fears Brexit will cause a further exodus of foreign healthcare professionals.

Get rid of needing a degree, plenty of Florence Nightingales outthere who have that caring nature and well suited to nursing. 

Adding the old English test to the application has put a lot of foreigners off from applying.
