Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered full-time? 
The individual institution determines what is considered full-time employment as a member of the nursing faculty.

What is the service period? 
The service period is a minimum of nine months of a 12-month academic year.

I am participating in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Does this disqualify me from any loan repayment program?
No. This program requires a person to make 120 payments before the loan is potentially forgiven. The verification process does not take place until after all 120 payments have been made. A participant may complete the state program before all 120 payments have been made on their federal loans.

When will I receive my award? 
The annual award will be mailed to the lender after you have completed each year of service and all required documentation has been received and reviewed.
