Program Description:

This notice solicits applications for the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP).  The purpose of this one-year funding opportunity is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty by providing funding to accredited schools of nursing to offer loans to students in advanced education nursing degree programs who are committed to become nurse faculty.  In exchange for full-time, post-graduation employment as nurse faculty, the program authorizes cancelation of up to 85 percent of any such loan (plus interest thereon).

Additional Eligibility

Eligible applicants are schools of nursing in accordance with 846A of the Public Health Services Act.  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 50 states, District of Columbia, 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 five (5) percent) may be deemed ineligible for future funding or be subject to additional penalties, up to and including, award termination.
