What is the program?

The Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) is a one year funding opportunity aimed to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty.

The NFLP will provide funding to accredited schools of nursing to offer loans to students who will work to become nurse faculty.

Students must be enrolled in advanced education nursing degree programs, as advanced nursing degree programs are best suited to produce nurse faculty.

In exchange for full-time, post-graduation employment as nurse faculty, the program authorizes cancellation of up to 85% of any such loan (plus interest thereon).

Are you eligible?

Eligible applicants are accredited schools of nursing. Any school(s) of nursing affiliated with this application must be accredited at the time of application – and for the duration of the award – by a national agency approved by the Secretary of Education for nurse education accreditation.

Applicants must submit official documentation of accreditation in Attachment 1 for all affiliated nursing programs.

Eligible applicants must be located in the United States, Guam, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, or the Republic of Palau.

Tribes and tribal organizations may apply for these funds, if otherwise eligible.

Foreign entities are not eligible for this HRSA award.

Individuals are not eligible to apply.

For competing continuation (renewal) applicants, your institution’s default rate status may be considered in determining future NFLP award decisions.

Competing continuation applicants that are above the default rate threshold (greater than 5%) may be deemed ineligible for future funding or be subject to additional penalties, up to and including, award termination.
