has 5 years experience as a BSN, MSN, APRN, NP and specializes in FNP: Urgent Care & Primary Care; RN: Med-Surg.
I went to be best university in the state of MS, USM!. I was a psychology/chemistry major there. Two years later, I was accepted to Vanderbilt University! I completed a bridge program for non-RN's and I'm very proud of it!! It is actually the harder way to become an NP, but I feel that I received a better education than most. Any thoughts otherwise, talk to me. I am very good at my job as a nurse!!
I work at a FQHC, which is stressful enough, but on occasion I have to work alone. They do not send help when my nurse has to be out. Has anyone else had to go through this? How many M.D.’s do you know of are expected to sometimes work alone? Did you stay at that organization?
Has anyone ever transferred their loan repayment to a different site? For example to a different state? If so, did you have to have a compelling reason? Or, could you just move if you wanted to? Was it a hard and long difficult process or was it easy? How long did it take? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Has anyone ever transferred their HRSA loan repayment site? If so, do you have to have a compelling reason (I just want to move)? Was the process hard/easy? How long did the process take? Any tips? Thanks!
I actually received an email today too. Third time was the charm? Definitely tier 1, DTI 180%, FNP at score 19 FQHC. Nurse Corps
On a side note, I was thinking I would be denied (again), so now I want to move to Dallas, TX. How easy/hard are these to transfer. The Dallas clinic score is 19 as well.
I want to move from central Mississippi to Dallas, TX. I have 4 years of experience and currently make 101K. Would I be looking at a pay cut or raise? And, do you have suggestions on where to look for a job in the Dallas, Texas area? Thanks.
This is also my 3rd year applying. And I am tier 1, so just know that there are apparently no automatic guarantees! . I was told that my application was marked ineligible last year because of the wrong date on a form?? But my application read eligible the whole time! If I hadn’t asked why I didn’t get it I guess I wouldn’t have known. Go figure.

So even if you don't have $200k in loans, you can get turned down. Which is fine if they would just say this is a totally random award and not continue to claim that it's need based. But I do feel your pain.
Actually, we never know the private circumstances of people so we shouldn't judge. But, Idk how they will know if you are likely to stay or not. One of the ladies I work with will be finishing her third year and is actively searching for new employment. My friend is going on her 4th year at a FQHC. This lady also went to schools that did not cost as much as my friends. She shouldn't be punished for going to a higher rated school. The stated purpose is that this is need based. I really don't see it, but they didn't ask me...
I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate those of you of whom received the awards. I can only imagine how helpful it is. With that being said, these awards are no more need based than I am a polka dot centaur! Lol. I don't know how they award the repayment but if it really were, then how would Tier 2 people ever be awarded if I never was with a DTI of about 180%! An NP I work with has $60k of debt with $90k in salary. But like me my friend wasn't awarded, and she has $200k in debt with $99k salary. Not bitter just sayin'. I don't know.
