New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
The Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing was recently awarded more than $1.19 million in tuition and fees support for Doctor of Nursing Practice students. The grant was awarded this month from the Nurse Faculty Loan Program administered through the U.S. Public Health Service, Health Resources and Services Administration for 2012-2013. The amount of funding available through the NFLP award is in excess of $1.3 million including contributions by Loyola University.
“This is the largest student support award in the history of the School of Nursing and assures that continuing and new students and applicants have access to funding support for their doctoral education,” said Ann H. Cary, Ph.D., director of Loyola´s School of Nursing which offers Louisiana´s only accredited DNP program.
To receive the NFLP funds, doctoral students and graduates agree to obtain full-time faculty positions in schools of nursing throughout the U.S. In return, up to 85 percent of their DNP loans are forgiven. Students and new applicants interested in applying to the DNP program should visit Loyola’s website, or contact Lisa Williams (504) 865-2493 for more information on the NFLP program.
The deadline for early-decision application for the 2013 DNP online program is Nov. 1, 2012. Application and detailed program information for all DNP programs are available at http://css.loyno.edu/nursing/doctor-nursing-practice.
