Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program Seeking Nurse Practitioners

01/20/12  Statewide

Do you know someone who is a Nurse Practitioner (NP)? The Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) is reserving up to half of all funding for NPs and we need your help to get the word out.

NELRP offers NPs an opportunity to repay up to 85 percent of their outstanding qualifying educational loans in exchange for serving at a Critical Shortage Facility that is located in a Health Professional Shortage Area.

The deadline to apply to NELRP is February 15, 2012 at 5:00 pm EST. NPs can apply to both NELRP and the National Health Service Corps, however if an applicant is selected to receive an award from both, they must select one.

Please join NELRP in spreading the word to NPs who might be interested in applying to the program.
