There has been a Huge Rise in Student Nurses

A number of students have been placed on various nursing courses all across the UK this year. New figures have been published by UCAS and they have revealed a lot of information about this. The data has been published a month after the 28-day period. 3,150 men have started nursing courses this year and this is the highest that there has ever been. Studies have also shown that there has been a 30% increase from the year before. Of course, you should also know that there has been a 23% increase amongst all age groups too. The number of mature students has risen by 23% as well.

This all comes after the government have issued a challenge to the health and education sectors to see if they can expand their intake of students. They have the aim of trying to meet their target of being able to deliver 50,000 more nurses by the year 2025.

Brian Webster-Henderson who is the chair of the Council of Dean’s of Health has congratulated every educator, saying that it is amazing that they have achieved this extraordinary response for nursing students. If you work in a nursing recruitment agency or if you are thinking about enrolling in a nurse agency, then you will understand this more than anyone.

Social Care Colleagues

Social care colleagues are meeting the growth target for nursing students and they now have to make sure that they meet the increase in student numbers. They need to make sure that they are investing in their students, their infrastructure and their staff too. If they don’t then they may find that they end up not meeting expectations and this is the last thing that people need. It’s important to capitalise on this growth as much as possible.
