Nursing Student Loan-For-Service

The purpose of the Nursing Student loan-for Service program is to increase the number of nurses in areas of the state, which have experienced shortages, by making educational loans to students seeking certification or licensure in nursing.

As a condition of the loan, a student must declare their intent to practice as a nurse in a designated health professional shortage area in New Mexico. Penalties apply for failure to provide service.

Amount of Loan
The award is dependent upon the financial need of the student. The amount will be prorated and awarded each semester (fall/spring). Each applicant is required to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Who is Eligible?
A New Mexico resident who is enrolled and accepted in a program of nursing at an accredited New Mexico public post-secondary educational institution.

Payment Provision
