nurse trainingHave you thought about training to become a registered mental health nurse?

Here are five reasons why there's no better time to apply:

1. You could have up to £2,613 more funding per year through student loans available to you during the period of your study, relieving some financial pressures felt by current students

2. Based on 2016 NHS Band 5 starting pay of £21,909, you will repay £6.82 per month from the April after graduation from a net monthly income of £1,438

3. In addition, there are non-repayable bursaries from the Department of Health, Student Finance England and University of the West of England (UWE) available:

• Additional non-repayable bursaries from UWE Bristol of £500 per year available to students from households with a low income
• Additional non-repayable grants and bursaries from the Department of Health, SFE & UWE Bristol for students with children that can add between £1K - £3K
• Further additional non-repayable grants from SFE for students with younger children and registered childcare costs that can add a further £1K - £3K

4. During your period of study, you will be eligible for additional financial support to cover the costs of any placement travel or accommodation, occupational health, DBS and uniforms

5. The training will qualify graduates to apply for a healthcare field offering excellent employment opportunities
