Nurses: Training

Volume 498: debated on Wednesday 28 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many student nurses there are in (a) England and (b) Bassetlaw constituency. (295655)

This information is not collected in the manner requested.

In 2008-09 there were 20,664 nurse training places commissioned for the whole of England. Due to the length of nurse training and attrition rates, this does not give a true picture of the exact number of student nurses currently in training across England and represents only the number of places commissioned for one year.

It is not possible to report on the number of student nurses in the Bassetlaw constituency.
