Faculty members from disadvantaged backgrounds with a professional health care degree/certificate may receive up to $40K in loan repayment assistance in exchange for teaching at educational institutions that provide training for health care professionals.
As in previous years, this program is expected to be competitive. If there are more qualified applicants than available funding, preference will be based upon: the amount of financial match from the applicant’s school; full-time faculty status; and faculty who demonstrate a commitment to promoting healthcare careers.

Welcome to the Florida Center for Nursing's website, the online source for information, research, and strategies addressing the dynamic nurse workforce needs in Florida.
At FCN one of our goals is to ensure you have access to the most recent nursing data from across the state.
