Hi everyone! I've seen multiple posts about the whole HRSA Loan Repayment program, but they left me feeling more confused than the official website. It seems that it is a highly competitive program, is this true? According to their website at hrsa.gov, these things qualify: ClinicsFederally Qualified Health Center*, Indian Health Service Health Center*, Native Hawaiian Health Center*, Rural Health Clinic*, Public Health Clinic*HospitalsAny public* or private nonprofit acute care or rehabilitation hospital, including Disproportionate Share Hospitals* and Critical Access Hospitals*Inpatient Nursing FacilitiesSkilled nursing facility*, nursing homeOutpatient FacilitiesAmbulatory surgical centerService ProvidersHome health agency, hospice, State or local public health or human services department*So the website leads me to believe that you are eligible as long as you work for *any* acute care hospital. So why do some sites put such an emphasis on critical access hospitals? It also says that disproportionate share hospitals qualify, but I've searched the internet high and low and can't seem to find out which hospitals fall into that category.On their site is also gives a link to finding "Health Professional Shortage Areas"- http://hpsafind.hrsa.gov/HPSASearch.aspx. This list has way more places listed on it that are not on any Critical Shortage lists I've seen. So basically, how do I know which place to choose? Yet another site, that I can't even find anymore, listed about 50 places around St. Louis that are in a "shortage area", but these places are also not listed on any Critical Access lists. What's the difference?
