Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program addresses the maldistribution of nurses by providing funds directly to the trained nurse for repayment of undergraduate and graduate loans for nurse training in exchange for the participant serving in a federally designated nursing shortage area. Funds to repay loans are available to nurses who received a baccalaureate or associate degree in nursing, a diploma in nursing or a graduate degree in nursing. All NELRP participants must enter into a contractual agreement to provide full-time clinical care in an approved facility located in a shortage county. In exchange for a 2-year service commitment, the NELRP will pay 60 percent of the participant's total qualifying educational loan balances (up to $30,000), subject to availability of funds. Nursing education loan repayment application packets are available approximately October 1 of each year. The closing date for receipt of applications is around July 31 of each year.
