Grants to USA and territories accredited nursing schools for student loan funds for advanced degree nursing students. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to increase the number of nurse faculty members. Institutions are encouraged to use their projects to increase the diversity of nurse faculty and to prepare and connect nurse faculty to serve in communities in need.

The purpose of this program is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty nationwide. NFLP seeks to accomplish this by providing funding to accredited schools of nursing to establish and operate a student loan fund and provide loans to students enrolled in advanced education nursing degree programs who are committed to becoming nurse faculty. In exchange for completion of up to four years of post-graduation full-time nurse faculty employment in an accredited school of nursing, the program authorizes cancellation of up to 85 percent of the original student loan amount (plus interest thereon).

Program Goals:

The goals of this program are to:

  • Support training of advanced education nursing students who will serve as nurse faculty upon graduation, with a focus on doctorate preparation;
  • Decrease the financial barrier of serving as nurse faculty through loan cancellation;
  • Increase the number of adequately prepared and qualified nursing faculty nationwide;
  • Address the nationwide primary care provider shortage by increasing access to designated joint nurse faculty (serving as Advance Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) preceptors, etc.); and
  • Foster the recruitment and training of a diverse nurse faculty workforce. This NOFO encourages applicants and grant recipients to recruit and train a diverse nursing workforce, but please note the NFLP is a formula-based award and award selections will not be impacted by applicants’ (including new and continuing competing award recipient) diversity recruitment efforts.

Program objectives can be found on page 5 of the NOFO. See Attached Files, below.

Program Requirements can be found on 17 of the NOFO.
