Apply to the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is now accepting applications for the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program through February 23, 2023. The program covers up to 85% of nursing education debt for registered nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, and nurse faculty. In exchange, awardees must work in a critical shortage facility or at an accredited school of nursing for at least two years. For application assistance, HRSA is hosting two webinars, one on January 26 from 2-3:30 PM (ET) and another one on February 15 from 2-3:30 PM (ET).

Take Action: Welcome to the 118th Congress

On January 10, AACN sent a letter to all U.S. Senators and Representatives welcoming them to the 118th Congress. This letter outlined our shared federal priorities as we work to bolster improvements in nursing education and research. AACN is calling for continued investments in Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development programs and the National Institutes of Health, including the National Institute of Nursing Research, to help meet the healthcare needs of our nation.
