US Student's incomings > what u get?

  1. Hiya

    Well as a UK student I'm curious. US RN's are meant to earn more than us UK RN's, so I wondered what you guys got whilst you train?

    The funding system is all over the shop in the UK, u get various amounts depending on a) where you live, i.e. england, scotland etc, b) what course you're doing - i.e diploma or degree (less money on offer for degree) and c) other things like dependents, age etc...

    on average if u studied in england and were single you would get just 5,300 p/a which is $8,300 USD. Not very much really and diploma students aren't eliagble for student loans too..

    So what about you lot?

    students may get academics scholarships, grants, loans, or employers may "foot" the bill with the student repaying by working with that employer for x amount of time after finishing school. there are many who pay their own way through school. some may get a full scholarship as well. we do not automtically get a set amount of money to attend school, that i know of, unless it is a full scholarship. others may be able to add to this thread.

    is this what you are asking about?

    No one pays us a stipend or allowance to attend school. We have to pay our own expenses, plus pay for the cost of school - tuition, books, uniforms, etc.

    Some or most are eligible for student financial assistance in the forms that Stephany listed above, but... For the most part, we're on our own, money-wise.

    Thanks for the info. Big difference in funding, probably cos there's a big difference in our health systems!

    Good luck!
