I am a:

Why Should I Apply for the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program?
Too many Americans—particularly in underserved areas—go without checkups, preventive screenings, vaccines, and other care, simply because there are not enough health care professionals to provide care and treatment in their communities. The NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program enables you to fulfill your passion to care for underserved people in some of the neediest communities across the country.

If you apply and are accepted to the program , we will pay for 60% of your unpaid nursing education debt over two years, with an option to extend to a third year for an additional 25% of the original balance.

In exchange, you work for a minimum of two years in one of the thousands of Critical Shortage Facilities across the country, including hospitals, clinics, and other facilities experiencing a critical shortage of nurses.


What Should I Do Before I Apply?
Before you apply, read the annually updated Application and Program Guidance (PDF - 593 KB). Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the NURSE Corps contract. It outlines the requirement for fulfilling your minimum two years of service at an eligible Critical Shortage Facility.
