Abstract

As specified in Section 823(b) of Title II, Public Health Service Act, it is possible for a nurse to have the entire amount of his loan plus interest cancelled if he works for a sufficient period of time in a public or other nonprofit hospital in any area determined by the Secretary of HEW as meeting the requirements relating to loan cancellation.

The American Hospital Association, in cooperation with the United Public Health Service, is conducting a 1970 Survey of Nursing Personnel in AHA registered hospitals. Data from the survey will used (1) to measure total manpower employed in this area, and (2) to determine whether nurses who have borrowed to finance their education are entitled to full cancellation.

Potentially eligible hospitals that do not participate in this survey may subsequently seek to establish eligibility by communicating with the National Institutes of Health, Bureau of Health Professions Education and Manpower Training, Division of Nursing, Bethesda, Maryland 20014.…
