You could try asking the UK's Tories: BBC News: Student nurses and midwives protest over grants cut
If the changes go ahead it would mean nursing students would, in the long run, pay to work. Unlike regular students nursing students have to work in clinical placements for 50% of the year, doing the exact same jobs as fully qualified nurses (and often being used as dogs-bodies, doing crap they shouldn't be doing and/or other people don't want to do). This means that, again unlike regular students, they have no time to take additional work to provide themselves with some extra income. If bursaries are replaced with loans, which have to eventually be paid back, it means that, essentially, they have paid to work in hospitals for 50% of their training period.
