The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) runs the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program. The program pays off up to 85% of RNs’ and APRNs’ college loans. Eligibility criteria include graduating from an accredited nursing program. Recipients must also agree to work in a health professional shortage area (HPSA) or at a nursing school for 2-3 years.
Typical job sites for participants include American Indian health facilities, urgent care centers, and hospices. HRSA prefers applicants with the greatest financial need. Interested professionals must submit a confirmation of interest, employment verification, and loan information.
