Rejected petition Ensure Student Nurses get paid for clinical placements during Covid-19 Pandemic

Over recent days, the English government has announced student nurses to be paid under the emergency standards, however, this is not the case for Welsh students as Wales opted out of the standard. It has been suggested student nurses should not be under financial pressure, however, students cannot move between jobs as it is not recommended due to increased risk of spreading the virus. In addition, Welsh hospitals are under the same amount of pressure as English hospitals.
