Can I get my loans forgiven??

by rl589092 rl589092 (Member)

I'm wondering if there are any programs private or government that will help pay my federal unsibsidized stafford loans. I have a balance of about 9,600. Looking for information. I live in Pennsylvania. I'm a new nurse, graduated in June. Any help would be great. :loveya:

I thought there was a program in PA for nursing loans. Does your hospital pay back loans at all?

Some hospitals will offer student loan repayment as part of their benefits package. They will pay your monthly bill for the student loan.

some hospitals will pay all or part of your nursing loans esp those in intercity hospitals and clinics

or where ever there is a nursing shortage

good luck
