Nurse Faculty Loan Program

Overview

Purpose of the Program

This source of financial aid consists of loans for students planning to become nurse educators after graduation. Repayment is expected after graduation from UTA or discontinuation of enrollment at UTA.

Up to $35k/academic year is available to qualified applicants with a maximum of $12,000 per semester.

Program Requirements / Service Obligation

  • The loan allows for 85% forgiveness of the loan for graduates who accept full time appointments in schools of nursing in the US for 4 years after graduation.
  • Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) recipients will be required to earn a Nurse Educator Certificate (12 SCH) and include those courses as part of their degree plan. Students who already have equivalent coursework on their transcript would be exempt from retaking such coursework (example: Nurse Educator MSN or previously earned certificate in nursing education). Students will work with their Academic Advisor to integrate these courses early in their degree plan.
