The Nurse Faculty Loan Program provides funds to eligible schools of nursing that offer advanced education nursing programs to prepare graduates to serve as faculty in a school of nursing.

The schools use the funds to establish distinct NFLP fund accounts or add to existing NFLP fund accounts. The NFLP fund must provide for loans made to students enrolled (full-time and part-time) in an eligible advanced degree program in nursing (master's or doctoral) at the school.

Program Change

As of FY 2008, NFLP student eligibility includes support for part-time enrollment. In previous years, the NFLP did not support students who were enrolled part-time. Effective July 1, 2008, participating schools may award NFLP loans to students enrolled full-time and part-time.

Loan recipients must complete the education program and, following graduation, may cancel up to 85% of the NFLP loan over a consecutive 4-year period while serving as full-time nurse faculty at a school of nursing (i.e., baccalaureate or higher degree, associate degree or diploma schools of nursing).

Approximately $7,860,000 is available in FY 2008 to fund an estimated 150 NFLP schools. Available funds are expended among the eligible applicant schools.

This Program Announcement describes the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) authorized by Section 846A (42 U.S.C. 297n-1) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Health Professions Education Partnership Act of 1998, Public Law 105-392 (42 USC 294c(c))
