2021 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program Application Cycle

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has opened the 2021 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program (LRP) application cycle.

Nurse Corps LRP offers funding to registered nurses (RNs), advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), and nursing faculty for payment of their qualifying educational loans. In exchange, recipients honor a two-year service commitment at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses or an eligible school of nursing in the case of nurse faculty. Additional loan repayment is available for a third year of service.

This year, Nurse Corps LRP has set aside special funding for nurses and nurse faculty who specialize in women’s and behavioral health:

  • Up to $5 million has been allocated for applicants working as women’s health nurse practitioners (NPs), certified nurse midwives, or certified RNs in obstetrics and gynecology.
  • Up to 50 percent of the remaining available funds has been allocated for NPs and up to 10 percent for nurse faculty. Of the 50 percent allocated for NPs, up to 20 percent is available for psychiatric NPs.

Before applying, review the Application and Program Guidance (APG) for information on eligibility and requirements.

The application cycle closes on February 25.


Visit the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program and Nurse Corps Facebook pages to learn more about this loan repayment opportunity.
