Nursing Faculty Loan Services

General Information

The Nursing Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) is a loan program funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Health Professions which allows nursing schools to make loans to their students enrolled full time in advanced degree nursing programs. NFLP loans made to eligible students can be used for the cost of tuition, fees, books, lab expenses and other reasonable education expenses, not including living expenses. Students must complete a FAFSA in order to be eligible. Completion of the FAFSA is required to ensure that the student has not defaulted on other student loans.

The purpose of the Nurse Faculty Loan Program is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty. The NFLP provides funding to schools of nursing to support the establishment and operation of a distinct, interest-bearing NFLP loan fund. The program offers partial loan forgiveness for borrowers that graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed period of time.

To obtain a Nursing Faculty Loan, the student must contact the School of Nursing and complete an application. You may write or call the School of Nursing directly.

We have included an application (PDF) and NFLP Guidelines (PDF) for your convenience.

The Loan Services Section of Student Accounts Receivable is responsible for the collection of NFLP loan. Repayment begins nine months after leaving school. Our office will contact you before the end of your final semester and will stay in contact with you until the loan is paid in full.

Name / Address Changes

You, as the borrower, are responsible for keeping the University current on any address changes. Loan Services uses the “local address” maintained by the Registrar’s office for your mailing address. Failure to receive correspondence or your monthly statement does not remove your responsibility for providing required documentation or from making your payment on time.

Name Changes:

  • If your last name changes, let us know the new name. We can add the new name to your loan for mailing purposes only without changing your official name with the University. Your academic records will remain unchanged.
  • Call, write, email, or fax us with your request.

Address Changes:

Communication

You may designate another individual to handle the affairs of your NFLP loan but you must provide us with written authorization.

Please complete our authorization form and return it to our office.
