Through the growing demands of an aging population, a shrinking workforce, and the ongoing effects of COVID-19, the United States is facing a shortage of nurses. Many health organizations, including Swope Health, have multiple job opportunities in the nursing field.
Nurses who are employed by community health centers like Swope Health, however, may receive funding toward payment of their qualifying education loans through the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program. To be eligible, you must be in a patient-facing nursing role with an organization that works with the medically underserved.
The Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program helps address the needs of patient populations facing health inequities, while supporting the development of the nursing workforce. It is not available to nurses who are employed in the private industry. The program can be a tremendous benefit for people with large qualifying education loans.
In exchange for the payment of these loans, the program works this way:
- Registered nurses and advanced practice registered nurses serve a two-year service commitment at a health care facility facing a critical shortage of nurses, like Swope Health.
- Nurse faculty serve a two-year service commitment at an eligible school of nursing.
- Additional loan repayment is available for both groups with a third year of service commitment.
