Help With Loan Repayment?Register Today!
- by Uptownurse Jan 22, '12Is anyone here aware of any programs or companies/health care systems that offer help with student loan repayment? I'm a master's-level nurse, currently working full-time, but just barely earning enough to cover my payments on loans from graduate school. I know that I can request to temporarily lower my monthly payments, but I am already worried about how long it might take me to pay them off, plus, I would like to back to school for an NP, and that would mean that I'd have to take out even more loans. I live in Massachusetts, but I am considering going back to IL at the end of the year.

- Jan 22, '12 by NickiLaughsYeah, the VA and military is about it. Most hospitals stopped their incentive programs due to having plenty of applicants. I can relate if that makes you feel better. My loan payments are more than two car payments put together.
