Get ready to apply for the FY17 NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program

The next NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program (LRP) application cycle is expected to open in January 2017.  To expedite the application submission process, potential applicants and facility administrators are encouraged to have their Critical Shortage Facility (CSF) reviewed for eligibility for participation in the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program. Eligible NURSE Corps sites or CSFs are defined as a health care facility located in, designated as, or serving a mental health or primary medical care Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA). Additional information about eligible health care facilities can be found on page 8 on the NURSE Corps LRP Application and Program Guidance.

For those who have already submitted your site for review, please disregard this message.

Potential applicants and facility administrators may submit their facility information to beginning November 14 through November 30, 2016.  Notifications of facility eligibility will be confirmed by the NURSE Corps staff no later than December 31, 2016, via email.  Please note:  All notifications will be sent to the email address initiating the request.

  1. Your Name
  2. Name of the facility and its specific location (i.e., satellite facility cannot use main facility address)
  3. Full mailing address of the facility including street address, City, State, and Zip code
    (Do not use P.O. Box)
