Loan Forgiveness Program ... For Registered Nurses*
Pursuing a nursing education and subsequent nursing career can be very rewarding ... and expensive. To help ease the burden of school loans accumulated throughout nursing school, Excela Health is introducing its new Loan Forgiveness Program, a way to repay part of those loans while you build your career.
We know that working as a nurse is a great way to help patients, their families and the community in a meaningful way. So, we want to reward your efforts by helping you with your loan balance.
Here's How the Loan Forgiveness Program Works
1. Monthly student loan payments start the month after the nurse-employee completes the six-month introductory period satisfactorily.
2. For eligible nurse-employees, $100 per month is paid directly to the student loan institution of the employee's choice for up to 50 consecutive monthly payments.
3. The nurse-employee must "Meet Expectations" or higher on performance reviews. Those on a Performance Improvement Plan, formal disciplinary action, written warning or above are not eligible.
4. Those who receive the loan forgiveness must remain employed at Excela Health for at lest 12 month after receiving the final loan payment. Those who do not remain for that specified time must repay all loan payments received.
*Also includes full and part-time RNs and weekend RNs who have not utilized the Excela Health Educational Assistance benefit.
