Congratulations to Dean Cary, PI for the continuation of the US DHHS Nurse Faculty Loan Program award (NFLP), 2017! For 2017-2018 the School of Nursing and Health Sciences has over $500,000 to distribute to doctoral and masters nursing degree seeking students who plan to be future nurse faculty. The NFLP is a wonderful opportunity for graduate nursing students who wish to educate the next generation of nurses. The program offers partial loan forgiveness for borrowers who graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed period of time. The loan recipients may cancel 85 percent of the loan over four years in return for serving full time as faculty in any accredited school of nursing.
