In May 2018 Ministers announced a £10,000 incentive package for post graduate nursing students that start courses in 2018 and go on to National Health Service employment in learning disability, mental health or district nursing roles.

Assuming that students go straight into employment, we would see payments starting to be made from June 2021.

The final details of the scheme will be published by the Government in due course.
