Nurse Faculty Loan Program

This announcement solicits applications for the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP).

The purpose of this program is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty by providing funding to accredited schools of nursing.

 The NFLP is designed to prepare and train qualified nurse educators


to fill faculty vacancies and increase the number of trained nurses entering the workforce.  This goal is accomplished by supporting schools of nursing that prepare students to serve as nurse faculty.  Schools (herein referenced as institutions) are required to design and implement curriculum to prepare nursing students to apply teaching strategies, develop curriculum for both classroom and clinical instruction, and be able to create effective methods for evaluation of student learning outcomes.  Grantees are awarded funds to support nursing students and are expected to establish and operate a distinct, interest-bearing NFLP loan fund.

 Institutions make loans from this fund to assist registered nurses in completing their graduate nursing education to become qualified nurse faculty.  The program offers cancellation of up to 85 percent of NFLP loans for borrowers that graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed period of time.
