Petition Re-instate nursing bursaries

Student nursing numbers have declined by 11% since nursing bursaries were removed. This petition calls on the government to reinstate those vital bursaries to tackle the desperate nursing shortage in our NHS in England. There are currently 40,000 vacancies for nurses.
