Nursing Loan Repayment, Scholarship, and Grant Programs

nursing graphicThe Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) supports a nursing workforce that meets the needs of the nation, especially its underserved and rural communities.

This support includes:

  • Financial assistance to individuals to help pay for nursing school or repay nursing student debt.
  • Grants and other investments in institutions that are training the next generation of nurses.

Together, HRSA nursing programs advance health equity by ensuring that all communities have access to high-quality and culturally competent medical care.
