    Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program

    The Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) assists in the recruitment and retention of professional registered nurses in facilities with a critical nursing shortage. NELRP encourages practice in these facilities by decreasing economic barriers associated with the rising cost of obtaining a nursing degree. The program offers RNs economic assistance through educational loan repayment in exchange for full-time service at a health-care facility with a critical shortage of nurses.

    For more information about NELRP, please visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services NELRP website: http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/repayment/nursing/.
