Nurses who work for a nonprofit or the government may qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness. … PSLF offers tax-free forgiveness of your remaining federal direct loans after you make 120 eligible payments while working full time for a qualifying employer; private loans are ineligible.
Subsequently, how do I get my nursing loans forgiven?
To be eligible for student loan forgiveness for nurses, candidates must be residents, have a nursing license and be enrolled in a higher education nursing program. Candidates must work full-time for four years to have their loans forgiven.
Keeping this in consideration, how long does it take for nurses to pay off debt?
The standard plan — 120 payments over 10 years — is best if you can afford your loan payments. If your debt is stretching you a little too thin, an income-driven plan can offer a more manageable monthly bill.
