The Federal Nurse Faculty Loan Program is a federally subsidized loan to cover tuition, fees, books, laboratory experiences and other reasonable educational expenses.
The NFLP is a loan cancellation program with a service obligation for recipients of the loans. To be eligible for the maximum 85 percent cancellation, the borrower must agree to serve as full-time or part-time nurse faculty at a school of nursing for a consecutive four-year period following graduation from the program.
Who is eligible to apply?
The NFLP is available to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who are enrolled full-time or part- time in an eligible master’s or doctoral degree program in nursing.
How does the NFLP compare with other educational loans?
The NFLP is not a need-based loan, but students must submit the FAFSA with their application.
What educational expenses are not covered by NFLP?
The program does not cover living expenses, transportation, food or other personal expenses.
What is the period of support through NFLP?
NFLP loans may cover educational program costs for the duration of the course of study, not to exceed five years. Loan offers are subject to the availability of funds and to the student’s academic status (must be in good standing in the educational program).
