Troy University School of Nursing (SON) has federal funding through the Health Resources
and Services Administration (HRSA) for graduate nursing students through the Nurse
Faculty Loan Program (NFLP). Funding is available for students enrolled in the Doctor
of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. Priority for funding will be given to those students
who are currently enrolled in the post-MSN option in the DNP program.
The NFLP provides funding to accredited schools of nursing to offer loans to students enrolled in advanced education nursing degree programs who are committed to becoming nurse faculty. In exchange for full-time, post-graduation employment as nurse faculty, the program authorizes the cancellation of up to 85% of any such loan. NFLP funding can make graduate school more affordable for those students planning to become full-time teaching nursing faculty following graduation. This program is contingent upon ongoing federal funding and therefore subject to change.
