Do You Have Unpaid Nursing Educational Debt?
Nurse Corps is a federally funded program that awards scholarships and loan repayment to nurses in exchange for a minimum service commitment of two years at a facility experiencing a critical shortage of nurses. By supporting these nurses, Nurse Corps builds healthier communities across the country. The deadline has been extended and applications for awards are now due May 26 at 7:30 pm EST.
