Sheffield Hallam is the second largest trainer of nursing and midwifery students in the UK, after recently signing a contract to train all pre-registration nursing and midwifery students in South Yorkshire, at both degree and advanced diploma level.
The increase will mean that students eligible for the non means tested NHS bursary could receive up to £7030 per year, plus other allowances depending on their circumstances. These students also have their tuition fees paid in full by the NHS.
Professor Linda Lang, Acting Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Sheffield said, "The bursaries for health care students play an essential role in allowing as many young people as possible to fulfil their ambitions to work in the NHS. For many students they make the difference between being able to continue with their education and having to get a job.
"The intensive nature of these courses means that students need this support during their studies and the extra financial support, alongside the fact that these students have their tuition fees paid by the NHS, means that we continue to benefit from having the best and brightest students applying to nursing, midwifery and allied health professional courses.
"The ageing profile of nurses and other health professionals means that we will increasingly rely on the new intake of professionals in the future, and offering the right financial support is essential in attracting them into the profession."

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
