Significance of the Guidance This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the agency’s current thinking on oxygen pressure regulators and oxygen conserving devices with a builtin oxygen pressure regulator. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and would not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statute and regulations. III.

Proposed Project: The Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP): Annual 
Operating Report (AOR) Form--NEW

    Under Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by 
Public Law 107-205, Section 846A, the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (HHS) enters into an agreement with a school of nursing to 
establish and operate the NFLP fund. HHS makes an award to the school 
in the form of a Federal Capital Contribution (FCC). The award is used 
to establish a distinct account for the NFLP loan fund at the school or 
is deposited into an existing NFLP fund. The school of nursing makes 
loans from the NFLP fund to eligible students enrolled full-time in a 
master's or doctoral nursing education program that will prepare them 
to become qualified nursing faculty. Following graduation from the NFLP 
lending school, loan recipients may receive up to 85 percent NFLP loan 
cancellation over a consecutive four-year period in exchange for 
service as full-time faculty at a school of nursing. The NFLP lending 
school collects any portion of the loan that is not cancelled and any 
loan in repayment and deposits these monies into the NFLP loan fund to 
make additional NFLP loans. The school of nursing must keep records of 
all NFLP loan fund transactions.
    The NFLP Annual Operating Report will be used to collect 
information relating to the NFLP loan fund operations and financial 
activities for a specified reporting period (July 1 through June 30 of 
the academic year). Participating schools will complete and submit the 
AOR annually to provide the Federal Government with current and 
cumulative information on: (1) The number and amount of loans made, (2) 
the number of NFLP recipients and graduates, (3) the number and amount 
of loans collected, (4) the number and amount of loans in repayment, 
(5) the number of NFLP graduates employed as nurse faculty, (6) NFLP 
loan fund receipts, disbursements and other related cost. The NFLP loan 
fund balance is used to determine future awards to the school.
