We know that as a healthcare students, some of you are in a unique position, working on the wards but without employment rights, and being students but  not adhering to a typical student calendar.

Many nursing students work additional hours as healthcare assistants to survive the financial hardship they face. This is often exhausting and potentially detrimental to their studies.

Our dedicated reps and organisers have vast experience in representing students while they work as healthcare assistants throughout their training.
