2013 NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program Application Cycle Now Open!

01/16/13  Statewide

The 2013 NELRP application cycle is now open! The deadline to apply is February 28, 2013, at 7:30 pm EST.

To learn more about program eligibility and requirements, visit: http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/repayment/nursing/guidance.pdf. We look forward to receiving your application.

We also wanted you to be aware of an important program change. The Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) and Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP) have a new name and identity. These programs now fall under NURSE Corps: Caring for Communities in Need. Through the NURSE Corps Scholarship Program (formerly the Nursing Scholarship Program) and the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program (formerly the Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program), NURSE Corps is empowering and enabling nurses to follow their passion for helping and healing others. While this name may be new, these are still the same great programs which have supported a community of nurses and nurse practitioners since 2002 who provide quality health care to underserved areas throughout the U.S. and its Territories.

To learn more please visit the new NURSE Corps web page where you can find important program information. While you’re visiting the web page, please be sure to check out the first edition of NURSE Notes, our new quarterly newsletter. Later this spring, we look forward to sharing a special member stories feature entitled “Stories from the Field” and a NURSE Corps Facebook page.
