If serving as a college or university faculty member is in your future, a new federal loan program administered by St. Kate's — with the potential for loan forgiveness — is here to help.
The Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) is available for qualifying students in St. Catherine University Master of Science in Nursing: Nurse Educator or Doctor of Nursing Practice program. The purpose of the program is to help St. Kate's graduates address the nursing workforce shortage. Awards cover up to a full year of tuition, required fees, and a book allowance (up to $35,000 per year). If, after graduation, you serve in a full-time position as a faculty member at an accredited nursing school for a required period of time, up to 85% of the principal and interest of your NFLP loan will be cancelled.
