Jobs offering loan repayment with NHSC

Recommended Posts

To all experienced PAs out there:

I see some jobs offering loan repayment with NHSC as part of benefits. How do I know if I would qualify for this type of loan repayment? I'm interested in going rural so I can pay my loans as soon as possible but don't want to move just to find out I can't receive the extra $$. Any info is appreciated so I can make an informed decision here.

As you probably already know, the NHSC Loan Repayment Program is not a guaranteed benefit. You will have to apply for it once you're actually working in the practice and during the open application cycle which I believe is early in the year. Our site has a score of 17 and there are NPs here who tell me they didn't get their repayment approved. Don't know any PAs who applied nor am I aware if there is a difference in likelihood of receiving it based on the alphabet soup after your name. I'd recommend calling your prospective employer to ask how many of their APCs actually got it last year.

Really depends on the score of the clinic. The higher it is the better chance you have at receiving it. For example, one of my friends works at a place with a score of 23. Every single one of them have received it and none have been declined.
