2017 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program - page 5
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... Read More
Mar 19I have not received a credit check yet either. I'll be monitoring it through creditkarma, hoping the credit inquiry will come soon. From what I understand, this doesn't necessarily mean you'll get the repayment, but NOT getting a credit inquiry means you won't get it.
Mar 19I applied last year did not get the award, RN MH score 17, D/I 180%. I had a credit check show up on Equifax credit report only.

Mar 19I applied last cycle and was denied and when I enquired as to why I didn't make the cut this was the
response. I thought I was tier 1 with a debt-to-ratio of 150% I wanted to know if I filled my app out wrong so I could fix it this cycle.
The NURSE Corps is a very competitive program that receives thousands of applications - from dedicated nurses, such as your-self, who provide health care to the underserved of our Nation - each year. Your debt-to-salary ratio was 65.00%/ Level 2 Tier. For the 2016 NURSE Corps funding cycle, all funds for Registered Nurses were depleted at the debt-to-salary ratio of 170.90% Level 1 Tier.
Each year, NURSE Corps funding has been depleted at different levels for each pool of applicants .
That is very interesting that you had a different percentage than they did. Now I am wondering if we all have looked it the wrong way...for me, I would have thought I was in Tier 1 the last 3-4 years!!! I just don't understand how different these numbers could be.
As I stated last year, I wish when we logged into portal, it would just tell us how they calculated our D/I ratio, what tier we are in, and how many people have applied. That way, for those without a shot in the dark, we wouldn't waste time stressing over the whole process! Gah!
Better communication from the program administrators would help us so much!
Mar 20No I figured wrong on the d/I ratio. I did believe I was tier 1, not 2. I owe $44000. I still applied for this cycle.
Mar 20@babyz : sorry about the disappointment
However, does anyone know what happens if your salary changes during the "under review" period? I wonder if that would make it look like I lied on my application and disqualify me?
Mar 22Quote from AnaLongThere should be a place in the applicant portal to ask this question. I would be up front with your income information. I'm sure it wouldn't look like you lied as long as you updated the information accordingly. Whether this disqualified you or not I have no idea. I hope that this isn't the case but if your income is now lower your chances of being awarded would increase. Good luck!@babyz : sorry about the disappointment

Mar 23I've been applying every year since I graduated. I'm a MH RN in tier 18. My debt to income ratio isn't awful so I doubt I will be awarded.
