Proposed Project: The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP): NEW

    The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP or ``Nursing Scholarship'') is 
a competitive Federal program which awards scholarships to individuals 
for attendance at schools of nursing. The scholarship consists of 
payment of tuition, fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a 
monthly support stipend. In return, the students agree to provide a 
minimum of 2 years of full-time clinical service (or an equivalent 
part-time commitment, as approved by the NSP) at a health care facility 
with a critical shortage of nurses.
    Nursing scholarship recipients must be willing and are required to 
fulfill their NSP service commitment at a health care facility with a 
critical shortage of nurses in the United States, the District of 
Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Territory of Guam, the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the 
Territory of American Samoa, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the 
Marshall Islands or the Federated States of Micronesia. Students who 
are uncertain of their commitment to provide nursing in a health care 
facility with a critical shortage of nurses in the United States are 
advised not to participate in this program.
    The NSP needs to collect data to determine an applicant's 
eligibility for the program, to monitor a participant's continued 
enrollment in a school of nursing, to monitor a participant's 
compliance with the NSP service obligation, and to obtain data on its 
program to ensure compliance with legislative mandates and prepare 
annual reports to Congress. The following information will be 
collected: (1) From the applicants and/or the schools, general 
applicant and nursing school data such as full name, location, tuition/
fees, and enrollment status; (2) from the schools, on an annual basis, 
data concerning tuition/fees and student enrollment status; and (3) 
from the participants and their health care facilities with a critical 
shortage of nurses, on a biannual basis, data concerning the 
participant's employment status, work schedule and leave usage.

                                       The Estimated Burden is as Follows:
