2017 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

emmiecb emmiecb (New) New

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 else out there?

I am applying as well. Tier I, score 19, not faculty or NP. Good luck!

I am applying for the 2017 cycle. I applied a couple of years ago. Tier 1, 18, Np. Hoping we are successful. Trying to get my information gathered so I can submit everything after it opens

Any word on what day the application opens?

I haven't seen anythung5... Prob mid January.

I want to apply but I'm so fricking confused at my facility score. I graduated in May and just started at a Dialysis center in a critical shortage area but can't figure out my facility score. Ughck. I'm also confused as to if I qualify to even apply given I am just starting there.

An email went out several weeks ago to submit your facility to verify eligibility. I would call the help desk and ask í ½í±í ¼í¿»

I think the application process opened yesterday. I submitted my application today.

Can someone help me? What forms did you submit from Navient? I only had 2 loans that I had to manually enter, and want to make sure I submit the correct documentation. Is the account details from the website ok?

how do you know which tier you're in and what score you are?

Hi everyone! I just submitted my application, but had a few questions. I am tier 1 with a DI of 146%. Anybody know of others with a similar DI have been awarded in the past?

Also, did anyone include any additional supporting documents--such as RN and APRN license?

Thanks.

Yes!! I am in the exact same boat! This is my 5th year applying...I think??...and am also praying that I can get some relief! My hospital score is 16 and my D/I ratio is >115%. I know that there are a lot of other nurses out there with more debt, but I owe more on my loans than the original loan amount given. Interest is KILLING me!

Here's to hoping that this year will finally be our year! :nono:

Has anyone had any problems with employment verification my POC no longer works there. Just submitted an email request to another POC at my facility

Exactly the same boat and it's SO tough. I did notice that the funding is slightly different this year and I'm just praying SO hard that's it's my time. Best of luck to you!!

Thank you! I'm so thankful that I have a passion for Nursing because I'd be tempted to give my degrees back to knock out my student loans! :D...I'm just kidding...kind of.

Luckily, my D/I ratio just increased to 145% because I was out part of last year after a shoulder surgery and made less money. Hopefully, that will put me in a good place to finally receive this wonderful offer. We shall see. Good luck to everyone!!!

Just call your HR department and ask them for the email of the new POC and send that in.

How is the funding slightly different this year?

Look on the bottom of page 10 in the program guidance section. Of the 30% allotted to the "base RN" group, the funds are further divided into 15% for each grouping of CSFs. I think it makes the chances even slimmer of receiving an award. Nonetheless, praying and praying and praying....

Hi everyone! I applied for this round also--but not getting my hopes up, based on last year's thread. My facility's score is 17, my D/I is only 105%. But miracles do happen, and I'll take what I can get! People generally started hearing things around July last year. Credit checks were run in April. Everyone ready to hurry up and wait? ;)
