The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) seeks clinicians who want to serve the nation’s underserved rural, urban and tribal communities.

To combat the nation’s opioid crisis, the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Loan Repayment Program (SUD Workforce LRP) offers eligible clinicians up to $75,000 in student loan repayment in exchange for a three-year commitment to provide substance use disorder treatment services at NHSC-approved sites.

This program is available to more professionals, including pharmacists and registered nurses. For more information, refer to the fact sheet and 2019 Application and Program Guidance (NHSC SUD Workforce LRP) (PDF - 573 KB).

Compare the SUD Workforce LRP with the traditional NHSC LRP - see chart at the bottom of the article

Are you eligible?

Approved sites are located across the U.S., in both urban and rural areas. Visit the Health Workforce Connector to see if your current employer is already approved which then makes you eligible to apply for loan repayment.
