Defaulted student loans
- 0Oct 14, '10 by zzirvingjCan you obtain a license as an RN if you have a defaulted student loan? And does it matter if it's a private loan or a federal loan that's defaulted?
Does it matter if it's a loan you took out for a prior degree vs. a loan you took out while pursuing your education as a nurse? Can anyone direct me to a source of information where I can obtain answers to these questions?

- 0Jul 4, '11 by carrie_cI don't know if you will be able to get a license, but I know in my state, they have become very strict on people who default. Everyday I have read about nurses getting their licenses revoked for default. I don't think it matters what degree you took out the loan for, but you should call the BON in your state and ask.
