    PA 's "Nursing Loan Forgiveness for Healthier Futures"

    To qualify to participate in Healthier Futures students must graduate from an approved professional nursing education program during or after 2003. Nursing students can graduate from an LPN, RN, BSN, MSN, or PhD program to participate. The program encourages LPNs with a two-year degree or certificate to return to school to become an RN and qualifying nurses to return to graduate school to prepare to replace nursing faculty who are approaching retirement.

    In return for benefiting from the program nursing graduates must agree to work as a direct-care nurse at an approved Pennsylvania healthcare facility or as a nurse educator in the commonwealth for one to three years. Out-of-state students attending eligible nursing school in Pennsylvania can participate in the program provided they work in the state after graduation. The program requires nursing graduates to work for a hospital or health system that has agreed to match at least dollar-for-dollar PHEAA's loan forgiveness contribution.

    So, Am I misunderstanding this. To "forgive" the student loans, one has to be out of work? I read something about willing to relocate?
