A nurse’s decision to work as a stripper to fund her degree course, and regular student finance advice, all feature in the latest Nursing Standard podcast.



Episode three of season four of the podcast includes an interview with nurse Ellen, who discusses how stripping helped to finance her nursing course and led her to become more open-minded when working with patients from different backgrounds.   

Ellen has appeared on the BBC Three programme Girls on Girls about the different lives of five young women.

The episode also features student finance advice such as working as a healthcare support worker while studying, as well as how to access hardship support.
