HRSA Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

Posted over 6 years ago by Juliette Blount

The Health Research and Services Administration (HRSA) recently announced that its NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program, formerly the Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program, is now accepting 2013 applications through February 28. In exchange for a two-year commitment to work in a hospital or other facility with a critical shortage of nurses or at an accredited nursing school, the program assists nurse practitioners and other registered nurses, advanced practice nurses and nurse faculty with repayment of their educational loans.  To meet the increasing demand for nurse practitioners, up to half of the program funding is reserved for NPs.  More information on program eligibility and requirements is available on HRSA’s website or the new NURSE Corps web page
