Criteria for cancellation:

    *Students are encouraged to negotiate faculty status/designation with an accredited school of nursing prior to precepting students to ensure requirements are met for loan cancellation.

Loan cancellation occurs over four years with repayment of 20% of the total principal and interest repaid following years one, two, and three, and 25% being repaid following year four.
Repayment of the additional balance is postponed during the cancellation period. This loan accrues interest at a rate of 3% per annum, beginning 3 months after graduation; and after obtaining employment as a nurse faculty within 12 months following graduation.
