    REPORT TO CONGRESS

    NURSE CORPS LOAN REPAYMENT AND SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

    FISCAL YEAR 2016

  • 1

    Executive Summary The NURSE Corps Loan Repayment and Scholarship Programs Report to Congress for fiscal year (FY) 2016 is required by section 846(h) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 297n(h)), which states, in part:

    Not later than 18 months after August 1, 2002, and annually thereafter, the Secretary shall prepare and submit to the Congress a report describing the programs carried out under this section.

    The overarching goal of many Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) programs is to support and facilitate the provision of health care in areas of greatest need. HRSA administers the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program (LRP) and the NURSE Corps Scholarship Program (SP) to help ensure a sufficient distribution of nursing professionals. The NURSE Corps LRP and SP support nursing education and training by providing recruitment and retention incentives to nurses committed to a career in underserved communities. These incentives take the form of either a loan repayment or a scholarship award in exchange for service in a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses (“Critical Shortage Facility” or “CSF”) that is located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA).1 The NURSE Corps LRP is also authorized to extend loan repayments to nurse faculty serving in accredited schools of nursing. In FY 2016, the NURSE Corps received $83.1 million from annual appropriations. The NURSE Corps LRP received over 8,100 applications and the NURSE Corps SP received over 2,400 applications. A total of 1,125 new and continuation NURSE Corps awards (883 LRP and 242 SP) were made to residents of 49 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia in FY 2016. Of the 679 new and continuing awards to NURSE Corps LRP participants serving at CSFs, 96 percent served at CSFs in high-need HPSAs, which are defined as areas with a HPSA score of 14 or higher. The average HPSA score for the FY 2016 CSF placements was 17. In addition, 204 NURSE Corps LRP awards were to nurse faculty participants, with 57 percent of new nurse faculty awardees serving at schools with at least a 50 percent enrollment of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Fifty-six percent of NURSE Corps SP awards were given to baccalaureate students, 38 percent awarded to students obtaining their Master’s degree, 5 percent awarded to individuals pursuing associate’s degrees, and 1 percent awarded to nursing diploma students. With the addition of these FY 2016 awardees, as of September 30, 2016, the NURSE Corps field strength includes over 2,000 registered nurses and nurse faculty members. In addition, 86 percent of the NURSE Corps alumnae have remained at the site where they fulfilled their obligation up to 2 years beyond the completion of their NURSE Corps commitment.

    I. Legislative Language

    This report is being provided to Congress as required in section 846(h) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act [42 U.S.C. § 297n(h)], as amended, which states, in part:

    Not later than 18 months after August 1, 2002, and annually thereafter, the Secretary shall prepare and submit to the Congress a report describing the programs carried out under this section.

    II. Introduction

    In 2002, the Nurse Reinvestment Act amended section 846 of the PHS Act, adding the Nursing Scholarship Program to complement the established Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program. Section 103 of the Nurse Reinvestment Act was referred to as the “National Nurse Service Corps” in the legislation. NURSE Corps refers to both loan repayment and scholarship programs to reflect the statute section title and goals of the programs. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) administers the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program (LRP) and the NURSE Corps Scholarship Program (SP) to help ensure a sufficient distribution of nursing graduates and professionals. The NURSE Corps LRP, first authorized in 1971, is a financial incentive program under which professional licensed registered nurses (RNs) and board certified advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), such as nurse practitioners (NPs), enter into contractual agreements with the federal government to work full time in a health care facility with a critical shortage of professional nurses which is also known as a Critical Shortage Facility (CSF), in return for repayment of qualifying nursing educational loans. The NURSE Corps LRP repays 60 percent of the outstanding principal and interest on the nursing education loans of RN and APRN participants with the greatest financial need, as determined by the program, in exchange for 2 years of full-time service at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. Participants may be eligible to receive repayment of an additional 25 percent of the original qualifying loan balance in exchange for an optional third year of full-time service. The NURSE Corps LRP also provides awards to nurse faculty who agree to serve at an accredited school of nursing. These awards assist in the recruitment and retention of nurse faculty at accredited schools of nursing by decreasing economic barriers that may be associated with pursuing a career in academic nursing. Nurse faculty participants receive the same loan repayment benefits as other program participants. The NURSE Corps SP pays tuition, fees, and other reasonable costs and provides a monthly stipend to individuals attending accredited schools of nursing in exchange for a service commitment after graduation of at least 2 years in health care facilities with a critical shortage of nurses. NURSE Corps SP participants may attend accredited associate, baccalaureate, or advanced degree nursing programs, as well as diploma nursing programs. Tuition and fees are paid directly to the accredited school of nursing based on an invoice submitted by the scholar’s school official. Other reasonable costs reflect an additional annual payment provided directly to each scholar to assist with the cost, as submitted by the academic institution, of books, clinical

    supplies/instruments, and uniforms. Stipend amounts are the same for each scholar; the amount for each full-time student in 2016 was $1,330 per month. The NURSE Corps SP awards reduce the financial barrier to nursing education for all levels of professional nursing students, thus increasing the pipeline of nurses who will practice in underserved areas. Qualified applicants with the greatest financial need receive a funding preference. Together, the NURSE Corps LRP and the NURSE Corps SP impact the distribution of nurses across the United States by placing nurses in facilities with critical shortages of nurses. Many factors continue to affect the demand and supply of the nurse workforce, including population growth, aging of the population, overall economic conditions, aging of the nursing workforce, demand for health services broadly and within specific health care settings, and health care payment. Lower growth in RN supply compared to state-specific demand is projected in 16 states, resulting in a projected shortage of RNs in these states by 2025; 10 of these states are in the West, 4 are in the South, and 2 are in the Northeast.2 Employers in these regions report difficulty in recruiting and retaining an adequate number of RNs primarily because of an aging RN workforce and a lack of younger RNs to fill the positions. States in the South and Midwest have younger nursing workforces as compared to the Northeast and West.3 The differences in the age of the nursing workforce suggest that the need for actions for workforce development, differ by geographic region. Additionally, almost one-third of pre-licensure RN programs were unable to expand capacity due to lack of faculty.4 To become nurse faculty, an RN must continue his or her training and assume additional financial and time commitments that many working nurses cannot afford. The average ages of doctoral- and master’s degree-prepared nurse faculty is 56.8 years and 55 years, respectively.5 As nurse faculty retire, the shortage of nurse faculty will become more pronounced. The NURSE Corps LRP and SP work together to address the need for nurses in CSFs, and the NURSE Corps LRP also supports nurse faculty at accredited schools of nursing. The NURSE Corps LRP and SP regularly identify various types of CSFs that have been deemed to have a critical shortage of nurses. CSFs include health care facilities that are located in, designated as, or serving a HRSA-designated Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) with shortages of primary medical care or mental health professionals. HPSAs may be geographic areas, population groups, or medical facilities. NURSE Corps programs incorporate a funding preference based on the facility’s primary medical care or mental health HPSA score to maximize placement in shortage facilities and ensure participants are serving underserved

    communities. This preference allows the programs to allocate resources to facilities with greatest need and to improve participant placements.

    III. Overview

    The annual application guidance for each program outlines the NURSE Corps priorities. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, 50 percent of the NURSE Corps LRP and SP funding was set aside to support NPs in underserved areas. To increase the number of NPs participating in the programs, the NURSE Corps LRP and SP recruit licensed and certified NPs and individuals interested in pursuing NP training through outreach efforts to colleges, universities, and associations.

    During the NURSE Corps application review process, a funding preference is given to applicants with the greatest financial need, defined as qualified applicants whose debt to salary ratio is 100 percent or greater for NURSE Corps LRP and qualified applicants with an Expected Family Contribution, determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, between $0 and $5,198 for the NURSE Corps SP. Among qualified NURSE Corps LRP applicants with the greatest financial need, RNs who work in CSFs with a HPSA score of 14 or above and nurse faculty who work at eligible schools of nursing with at least 50 percent enrollment of students from disadvantaged backgrounds receive priority. Among NURSE Corps SP applicants with the greatest financial need, nursing students enrolled full-time in a graduate level NP program receive priority.

    This report summarizes the activities of the NURSE Corps LRP and SP for FY 2016. The report provides information on:

    The number of enrollees, scholarships, loan repayments, and recipients; The number of graduates; The amount of scholarship payments and loan repayments made; The educational institution that the recipients attended; The number and placement location of the scholarship and loan repayment recipients at

    health care facilities with a critical shortage of nurses; The default rate and actions required; The amount of outstanding default funds of both the scholarship and loan repayment

    programs; The reason for the default to the extent that it can be determined; The demographics of the individuals participating in the scholarship and loan repayment

    programs; The justification for the allocation of funds between the scholarship and loan repayment

    programs; and An evaluation of the overall costs and benefits of the programs.

    IV. Report Requirements

    Requirement #1: The Number of Enrollees, Scholarships, Loan Repayments, and Grant Recipients

    In addition to awards made with annual appropriations, new and continuation NURSE Corps LRP and SP awards were made with funds recovered from those who breached their contracts. Section 846(g)(4) of the PHS Act authorizes amounts recovered from participants who breach NURSE Corps LRP and SP contracts to be available for programs under PHS Act section 846 and to remain available until expended. These funds are referred to as X-year funds. (A discussion of default rates follows on pages 10-11.) The programs use the recovered funds to make new awards, continuations, and modifications to the existing contracts. In FY 2016, the NURSE Corps LRP added $355,618.20 to its X-year account from participants who breached their contracts and NURSE Corps SP added $439,723.45. A total of 13 awards were made in FY 2016 with X-year funds for both the NURSE Corps LRP and SP consisting of 11 new awards and 2 modifications. NURSE Corps LRP and SP applications received and awards made are shown in Tables 1 and 2.

    NURSE Corps LRP: A participant receiving an award enters into a contract for 2 years of service; the award equals 60 percent of the participant’s qualifying nursing education debt. The participant may extend the contract to add a third year of service for an award equal to an additional 25 percent of the original qualifying debt amount. Participants requesting continuations must be in good standing with the terms of the initial contract. Eligible continuations are funded before new awards are made.

    HRSA made 511 new NURSE Corps LRP awards from annual appropriations and 7 new NURSE Corps LRP awards with X-year funds. Of the 518 new awards, 198 (38 percent) were to RNs, 162 (32 percent) were to NPs, 11 (2 percent) were to certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA), 4 (0.8 percent) were to certified nurse midwives, 2 (0.4 percent) were to clinical nurse specialists, and 141 (27 percent) were to nurse faculty. HRSA awarded 365 NURSE Corps LRP continuation from annual appropriations. Of these, 134 continuation awards (37 percent) were to RNs, 154 (42 percent) were to NPs, 9 (2 percent) were to CRNAs, 2 (0.5 percent) were to certified nurse midwives, 3 (0.8 percent) were to clinical nurse specialists, and 63 (17 percent) were to nurse faculty. HRSA made a total of 883 NURSE Corps LRP awards.

    health care facilities with a critical shortage of nurses. The NURSE Corps SP awards reduce the financial barrier to nursing education for all levels of professional nursing students, increasing the pipeline of nurses who will serve in underserved areas. If a scholar agrees to a contract for less than the full duration of the training program (e.g., a scholarship covering only the first 2 years of a 4-year baccalaureate degree program), the scholar may request a continuation of the contract in return for a commitment for additional years of support. Eligible continuations are funded before new awards are made. HRSA made 226 new NURSE Corps SP awards from annual appropriations and 4 new NURSE Corps SP awards and 2 modifications with X-year funds. Of the 230 new awards, 11 (5 percent) were awarded to associate’s degree students, 128 (56 percent) were awarded to bachelor’s degree students, 88 (38 percent) were awarded to master’s degree students, and 3 (1 percent) were awarded to nursing diploma students. HRSA made 12 NURSE Corps SP continuation awards with annual appropriations, with 2 (17 percent) awarded to associate’s degree students, 8 (67 percent) awarded to bachelor’s degree students, and 2 (17 percent) awarded to master’s degree students.

    Requirement #2: The Number of Graduates

    NURSE Corps SP participants may attend accredited associate, baccalaureate, or master’s degree programs or diploma programs. Scholars may opt for 1 to 4 years of scholarship support, consisting of payment of tuition and fees, other reasonable costs, and a monthly stipend. The minimum service requirement is 2 years of full-time service, with a maximum of 4 years of full-time service in a CSF, depending on the number of academic years for which the scholar receives support. NURSE Corps SP participants may fulfill their service obligation part time by extending the years of service so that the aggregate amount of service performed will be the full-time equivalent. In FY 2016, there were 265 NURSE Corps SP graduates from accredited school programs. Of these, 118 are serving in a CSF as of September 30, 2016 (Appendix A). There are 5 NURSE Corps SP graduates in nursing residency programs as of September 30, 2016. The remaining 142 graduates are actively seeking employment. NURSE Corps SP graduates have up to 6 months from their date of graduation to obtain a nursing license and accept an offer of employment from a NURSE Corps SP-approved CSF. Following acceptance, NURSE Corps SP graduates have up to 3 months to commence clinical services at the facility.

    Requirement #3: The Amount of Scholarship Payments and Loan Repayments Made

    The initial NURSE Corps LRP 2-year award pays an amount equal to 60 percent of the participant’s qualifying educational loan balance; the optional third year continuation pays an additional 25 percent of the original qualifying loan balance. NURSE Corps LRP continuations are funded before new awards are made.

    The NURSE Corps SP scholarship pays tuition and fees, other reasonable costs, and a monthly stipend. The scholar may choose between 1 year and a maximum of 4 years of financial support. If a scholar agrees to a contract for less than the full duration of the training program (e.g., a scholarship covering only the first 2 years of a 4-year baccalaureate degree program), the scholar may request a continuation of the contract in return for a commitment for additional years of support. NURSE Corps SP continuations are funded before new awards are made.

    Table 3 shows the total amounts paid for NURSE Corps LRP and SP new awards and continuations, funded from annual appropriations (base funds) and X-year funds.

    Requirement #4: The Educational Institutions Attended by Recipients6

    In FY 2016, NURSE Corps SP participants attended 148 schools in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Appendix B illustrates the distribution of NURSE Corps SP participants by state and educational institution.

    Requirement #5: The Number and Placement Location of the Scholarship and Loan Repayment Recipients at CSFs with a Critical Shortage of Nurses

    NURSE Corps LRP and SP participants who serve at a CSF must agree to a minimum 2-year service commitment. Private, for-profit entities are not eligible to receive placement of NURSE

    6 NURSE Corps LRP participants have completed their nursing education and are in service at CSFs or accredited schools of nursing; therefore, their educational institutions are not reported.

  • 10

    Corps LRP participants. However, the statute permits NURSE Corps SP participants to serve at private, for-profit entities.

    The CSF definition requires facilities to be located in, designated as, or serving a Primary Medical Care or Mental Health HPSA. The following types of facilities are considered to be eligible CSFs for placement of NURSE Corps LRP and SP participants:

    Critical Access Hospital, Disproportionate Share Hospital, Public Hospital, Federally Qualified Health Center, Indian Health Service Program, Native Hawaiian Health Center, Rural Health Clinic, Skilled Nursing Facility, State or Local Public Health or Human Services Department, Free and Charitable Clinic, Ambulatory Surgical Center, Home Health Agency, Hospice Program, Non-Disproportionate Share Hospital, and Nursing Home.

    In FY 2016, 679 NURSE Corps LRP participants served in 452 CSFs in 47 states and the District of Columbia (Appendix C). There were 204 NURSE Corps LRP participants who served as nurse faculty in 161 schools of nursing in 38 states (Appendix D).

    Requirement #6: The Default Rate and Actions Required The NURSE Corps LRP and SP default rates are defined as the percentage of participants in a cohort who default, where a cohort is defined as all participants with a new or continuation contract awarded in a particular FY. Default rates are calculated as the number of participants who have defaulted divided by the total number of individuals in the cohort. Individuals usually participate for multiple years, but should they default at any time during their obligation, that default is counted in the FY in which they received their initial award. Therefore, for any given cohort the default rate can change over time. Until the full cohort has completed the program requirements, there may be increases in default rates; therefore, the default rates below may be subject to change. The maximum number of years that a participant in full-time service may be in the NURSE Corps SP is 8 years, which reflects a maximum of 4 years in school and of 4 years of obligated service. The maximum number of years that a participant may be in the NURSE Corps LRP is 3 years, 2 years of service under an initial contract and 1 additional year under a continuation contract. All participants with periods of approved suspension of service during their obligation period may require an additional 1 to 2 years of monitoring. Therefore, the default rates are

  • 11

    reported over a span of 10 years for the NURSE Corps SP and 5 years for the NURSE Corps LRP to provide a more accurate picture of default rates. Participants who breach their contracts are placed in default and must repay the NURSE Corps LRP or SP funds they received plus interest, at the maximum legal prevailing rate, from the date of the breach. The interest rate for NURSE Corps debts is the applicable quarterly interest rate determined and fixed by the Secretary of the Treasury, after taking into consideration private consumer rates of interest. The NURSE Corps LRP and SP work with the participants placed in default by assisting them to satisfy their debts through service whenever possible. Historically, few defaults occur within the first year of the service obligation. Ten participants who were previously in default were granted an opportunity to return to service in FY 2016. Five participants were from the NURSE Corps LRP and 5 participants were from the NURSE Corps SP.

    Table 4: NURSE Corps Scholarship Program Default Rates (FY 2007-FY 2016)

    There were 214 defaults in the NURSE Corps SP from FY 2007 to FY 2016 as of September 30, 2016.

    Requirement #7: The Amount of Outstanding Default Funds of Both the Loan Repayment and Scholarship Programs Section 846(g)(4) of the PHS Act authorizes amounts recovered from participants who breach their NURSE Corps LRP or SP contract to be available for the respective program and to remain available until expended. The programs use these recovered X-year funds to make new awards, continuations, and modifications to existing contracts. In FY 2016, the NURSE Corps LRP added $355,618.20 to its X-year account. Seven new awards were made from the X-year account. At the end of FY 2016, the NURSE Corps LRP’s net accumulation in the X-year account was $235,143.46. In FY 2016, the NURSE Corps SP added $439,723.45 to its X-year account. Four new awards and two modifications were made from the X-year account. At the end of FY 2016, the NURSE Corps SP’s net accumulation in the X-year account was $487,900.56.

    As of September 30, 2016, the total outstanding default debt to be collected was $2,613,194 for the NURSE Corps LRP and $10,022,613 for the NURSE Corps SP.

    Requirement #8: The Reason for the Default The most common reasons for default in the NURSE Corps SP are failure to verify employment, academic dismissal, and withdrawal from the school.

    Requirement #9: The Demographics of the Individuals Participating in the Loan Repayment and Scholarship Programs NURSE Corps LRP and SP participants self-report demographic data. Hispanic/Latino and Non-Hispanic/Non-Latino self-reported ethnicity data in the electronic application is requested separately from gender and race data. Applicants may choose to report any of the demographic areas in whole or in part, which may contribute to higher reporting in certain categories. As a result, Hispanic/Latino and Non-Hispanic/Non-Latino data may be reported by a larger number of applicants as this information is the only metric for capturing ethnicity. Of the NURSE Corps LRP and SP participants who chose to report on sex, race, and ethnicity, the majority are female and White, with Black or African-American participants the largest minority group (Table 8).

    Requirement #10: Justification for the Allocation of Funds between the Loan Repayment and Scholarship Programs Historically, total NURSE Corps funds have been allocated at 67-75 percent for the LRP and 25-33 percent for the SP. For FY 2016, $83.1 million was appropriated for the NURSE Corps LRP and SP. Of the $83.1 million, HRSA allocated $73.2 million for the NURSE Corps LRP and SP, with the remaining $9.9 million directly supporting the NURSE Corps Programs in the form of staffing and acquisition contracts, including the electronic system used to process program applications and monitor awarded participants. Of the $73.2 million, HRSA allocated 67 percent ($49.0 million) to the LRP and 33 percent ($24.3 million) to the SP. The combination of these programs allows flexibility in meeting the future needs through the NURSE Corps SP pipeline of nurses and the immediate needs through the NURSE Corps LRP, which places nurses in the field immediately.

    Requirement #11: An Evaluation of the Overall Costs and Benefits of the Programs Cost

    1. FY 2016 NURSE Corps LRP Awards

    A total of 518 new awards were made in FY 2016, a decrease of 12 percent from the 590 new awards in FY 2015.

    The average new award amount for non-faculty NURSE Corps LRP participants was $85,335 and $59,769 for nurse faculty. This amount represents a 17 percent increase in the average new award for non-faculty participants and a 12 percent increase in the average new award for nurse faculty participants from FY 2015 to 2016.

    2. FY 2016 NURSE Corps SP Awards A total of 230 new awards were made in FY 2016. The average new award was $105,566.22. This award represents an 11 percent decrease in the number of new awards and a 14 percent increase in the average new award amount from FY 2015 to FY 2016.

    3. Average Amount Funded per Year of Service Obligated NURSE Corps LRP new awards are based on 2 years of obligated service and capped at 60 percent of the applicant’s total eligible loan amounts. The average new NURSE Corps LRP award amount per year of obligated service was $42,668 for nurses serving in CSFs and $29,885 for nurses serving in accredited schools of nursing, which represents an 17 percent increase and a 12 percent increase respectively from FY 2015 to FY 2016. The average cost of a NURSE Corps SP award is typically greater than the average cost of a NURSE Corps LRP award because NURSE Corps SP new award amounts may include up to 4 years of tuition, fees, stipends, and other reasonable educational costs. All of these can vary depending on the school that a student attends and the program in which the student participates. The average new NURSE Corps SP award amount per year of obligated service was $48,755.48, representing a 14 percent increase from FY 2015 to FY 2016.

    Benefits

    1. NURSE Corps LRP and SP Continuations

    NURSE Corps LRP continuations are used to reduce the cost of making new investments of direct support each year, while still gaining an additional year long service commitment at a CSF. In FY 2016, 55 percent of participants initially awarded in FY 2014 requested a continuation award. The NURSE Corps LRP awarded

  • 16

    365 continuations in FY 2016. Of the continuation awards, approximately 17 percent were made to nurse faculty (63 awards).

    2. Low Default Rates

    While individual year default rates are subject to fluctuations as program data are reconciled and each cohort moves closer to expected service completion, the default rates of the programs as of September 30, 2016, remain low. This demonstrates that the NURSE Corps LRP and SP are recruiting nurses suited for, and with a clear commitment to, service in areas with a critical shortage of nurses. The low default rate assures the programs that its efforts strengthen the nursing workforce by increasing the number of practicing health care providers in underserved areas.

    NURSE Corps SP: As of September 30, 2016, only 7.9 percent of participants (214 of 2,710) defaulted on awards made from FY 2012 – FY 2016. A significant number of these participants failed to verify employment or withdrew or were dismissed from school.

    NURSE Corps LRP: As of September 30, 2016, only 2.9 percent of participants (162 of 5,509) defaulted on awards made from FY 2012 – FY 2016. A majority of these participants failed to complete the service obligation following their resignation from an approved site.

    3. Placement An overarching goal of the NURSE Corps programs is to ensure that participants are serving where the need is greatest. The NURSE Corps LRP and SP work together to address the need for nurses in CSFs and support nurse faculty at schools of nursing. In FY 2003, the NURSE Corps LRP and SP identified various types of health care facilities that were deemed to have a critical shortage of nurses. In FY 2012, the definition of a CSF was modified to allocate program resources to facilities of greatest need and to improve the programs’ performance. CSFs are defined as health care facilities located in, designated as, or serving a Primary Medical Care or Mental Health HPSA. Continued use of this methodology for identifying CSFs has resulted in 100 percent of new and continuing awards being made to NURSE Corps LRP RNs serving at CSFs in high-need HPSAs with a score of 14 or higher. The average HPSA score for the FY 2016 CSF placements was 17. To increase the number of NPs participating in the programs, the NURSE Corps LRP recruited licensed NPs and the SP recruited individuals interested in pursuing training as a NP through outreach efforts to colleges, universities, and associations. In FY 2016, 50 percent of the NURSE Corps LRP and SP funding was targeted to support NPs who will serve in underserved areas. As a result, the programs made 406 awards to licensed NPs or individuals pursing training as a NP. As of September 30, 2016, NURSE Corps had a field strength of 2,016 nurses serving in 1,080 CSFs. Through FY 2016 new and continuation awards, 161 different schools of

  • 17

    nursing have NURSE Corps LRP nurse faculty members. The NURSE Corps total field strength includes the FY 2016 new and continuation award participants as well as those participants in ongoing service. As of September 30, 2016, 679 NURSE Corps LRP participants and 476 NURSE Corps SP graduates were in service in CSFs in 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. There were also 321 NURSE Corps LRP nurse faculty participants at accredited professional schools of nursing in 41 states. In addition, 86 percent of NURSE Corps alumni remained at the site where they fulfilled their obligation for up to 2 years beyond completion of their NURSE Corps commitment. Of those who are no longer providing care at the site where they fulfilled their obligation, 45 percent are providing patient care at a different CSF or accredited school of nursing.

    Conclusion

    The NURSE Corps LRP and SP continue to work towards eliminating areas with a critical shortage of nurses across the United States. Through the efforts and accomplishments highlighted in this report, RNs and APRNs care for underserved people in various health care facilities, and committed nurse faculty are supported in their mission to provide quality education in schools of nursing with students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
