Earn while you learn for health-care students

06.07.2006
Sheffield Hallam University has welcomed the Government's move to increase bursaries by 2.5 per cent for nursing, midwifery and allied health professional students.

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."

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
