Gov. Ron DeSantis recently announced additional funding for nurses in this year’s budget for student loan reimbursement through the Nursing Student Loan Forgiveness Program.

The Florida Legislature established the NSLFP in 1989 to encourage qualified personnel to seek employment in areas of the state where critical nursing shortages exist. The program provides funds to assist in the repayment of nursing education loans.

Applicants must be licensed as an LPN, RN or ARNP in the state of Florida, have loans incurred toward a nursing education, and work full time at a designated employment site established in Section 1009.66, Florida Statutes.
