The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies was awarded $676,000 to distribute to nursing students pursuing doctoral and master’s degrees who plan to be future nurse faculty. Priority is given to doctoral students in the award.
The Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) 2018-2019 award amount is the largest in UMKC history. The program, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, offers partial loan forgiveness for borrowers who graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed time period. The loan recipients can cancel 85 percent of the loan over four years in return for serving full time equivalents as faculty in any accredited school of nursing.
Dean Ann Cary is the principal investigator on the grant. For more information please contact Ms. Deidre Ashley (816-235-1723 or ashleyDL@umkc.edu)
