Health Care students are in a unique position as they work on the wards but do not have employment rights, and are students but do not adhere 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.

UNISON has vast experience in representing students while they work as healthcare assistants throughout their training. As the future of the NHS, student nurses often need guidance. UNISON provides assistance and advice for our members throughout their three-year training

Even before you qualify, UNISON is there for you – standing up for students to make sure you get the most out of your training and placement.
