Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)

NFLP is a loan forgiveness program that prepares and trains qualified nurse educators to fill vacancies and increase the number of trained nurses entering the workforce.

Regis makes loans from the fund made possible by a grant from the federal government. The program offers partial loan forgiveness for those borrowers that are accepted into a DNP program and graduate and serve as full time nursing faculty for a specific period of time. The loan recipients may cancel 85% of the loan over four years in return for serving full time as faculty in any accredited school of nursing.

The NFLP program is available to qualified students accepted to the DNP Nurse Education program. Find out if you are eligible here.
