Call the Midwife
Bursaries for student nurses will end in 2017, government confirms
the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) said the changes were unfair and risky, while the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) argued that the move threatened the future of maternity services in England.
The NHS bursary has long been a vital lifeline to those seeking to enter nursing, midwifery and other allied health professions. Nursing and midwifery students currently pay no tuition fees for their studies and receive a non-means tested grant of up to £1,000 and a means-tested bursary of up to £3,191 to help with the costs of living while they train.
Ah, but there's humor in it:

"Following the government’s decision to remove financial help for nursing students, all new nurses must be able to prove they are independently wealthy and own at least one horse. NHS recruiter Eleanor Shaw said: “We’re setting up stands at Glyndebourne, Henley Regatta and on several leading grouse moors, and we hope to have 1,500 braying Sloanes on staff by October."http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/health/nhs-to-recruit-debutante-heire...
