The Oklahoma Nursing Student Assistance Program offers forgivable scholarship loans to Oklahoma students pursuing nursing degrees in return for agreeing to practice in Oklahoma upon graduation, with an emphasis placed on practicing in rural communities.

Loans are forgiven if students complete a service contract. Loans are forgiven at the rate of one year of service per year of loan.

Eligible nursing degrees include:

  • Licensed practical nursing (LPN)
  • Associate's degree in nursing (ADN)
  • Bachelor's of science in nursing (BSN)
  • Master's of science in nursing (MSN)
  • Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)
