2017 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

  1. Hi Fellow Nurses!

    Is anyone else anxiously awaiting the 2017 cycle opening?

    I have applied several times and praying that 2017 is my year. I'm tier 1 - not faculty and not an NP.

    Is anyone else out there?

    I am applying for the 2017 cycle. I applied a couple of years ago. Tier 1, 18, Np. Hoping we are successful. Trying to get my information gathered so I can submit everything after it opens

    I want to apply but I'm so fricking confused at my facility score. I graduated in May and just started at a Dialysis center in a critical shortage area but can't figure out my facility score. Ughck. I'm also confused as to if I qualify to even apply given I am just starting there.

    An email went out several weeks ago to submit your facility to verify eligibility. I would call the help desk and ask

    Can someone help me? What forms did you submit from Navient? I only had 2 loans that I had to manually enter, and want to make sure I submit the correct documentation. Is the account details from the website ok?

    Hi everyone! I just submitted my application, but had a few questions. I am tier 1 with a DI of 146%. Anybody know of others with a similar DI have been awarded in the past?

    Also, did anyone include any additional supporting documents--such as RN and APRN license?

    Thanks.

    Yes!! I am in the exact same boat! This is my 5th year applying...I think??...and am also praying that I can get some relief! My hospital score is 16 and my D/I ratio is >115%. I know that there are a lot of other nurses out there with more debt, but I owe more on my loans than the original loan amount given. Interest is KILLING me!
    Here's to hoping that this year will finally be our year!
