Abstract: This collection request is for continued approval of the Nurse Faculty Loan Program’s revised Annual SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Performance Report (NFLP–APR) Financial Data Form. The form was previously titled as the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, Annual Operating Report (NFLP–AOR). Section 846A of the Public Health Service Act provides the Secretary of HHS with the authority to enter into an agreement with schools of nursing for the establishment and operation of a student loan fund to increase the number of qualified nurse faculty. Under the agreement, HRSA makes awards to schools for the NFLP loan fund, which must be maintained in a distinct account. A school of nursing makes loans from the NFLP account to students enrolled full-time or, at the discretion of the Secretary, part-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 4-year period in exchange for service as fulltime faculty at a school of nursing. The NFLP lending school collects any portion of the loan that is not cancelled and any loans that go into repayment due to default, and deposits these monies into the NFLP loan fund to make additional NFLP loans. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The online NFLP–APR Financial Data Form is an online form in the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) Performance Report module as part of the NFLP, Bureau of Health Workforce performance report (OMB No: 0915–0061, expiration date of 6/30/ 2019). The revised NFLP–APR financial data form will collect less data from applicants and will no longer include nursing student demographic data. The nursing student demographic data is currently collected under OMB approval number No: 0915–0061. The revised NFLP–APR form will only collect financial data to capture the NFLP loan fund account activity related to financial receivables, disbursements, and borrower account data related to employment status, loan cancellation, loan repayment, and collections. Participating schools will provide HRSA with current and cumulative information on: (1) NFLP loan funds received, (2) number and amount of NFLP loans made, (3) number and amount of loans cancelled, (4) number and amount of loans in repayment, (5) loan default rate percent, (6) number of NFLP graduates employed as nurse faculty, and (7) other related loan fund costs and activities.

Participating schools are required to complete and submit the NFLP–APR financial data form annually. The revised NFLP–APR financial data form will allow HRSA to better determine future awards to nursing schools.

Abstract: This clearance request is for continued approval of the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) revised Program Specific Data Form. HRSA is streamlining the data collection forms by making the following changes: • Line Item D will be renamed ‘‘D1. NFLP Loan Fund Balance/Unused Accumulation.’’ • Addition of Line Item D2 entitled ‘‘NFLP Loan Fund Default Rate,’’ PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requesting information regarding the status of an institution’s default rate. • Addition of Line Item D3 entitled ‘‘Last NFLP Student Loan Award,’’ requesting information regarding the disbursement of NFLP loan funds within the last 2 academic years. • Line Item E2 Column Header will be renamed ‘‘E.2 NFLP Enrollees Information by Degree—New Students Expected to Request NFLP Support.’’ • Under Section B of instructions, ‘‘other attachments’’ will be updated to reflect the current list of NFLP Funding Opportunity Announcement attachments. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The NFLP—Program Specific Data Form is a required electronic attachment within the NFLP application materials. The data provided in the form is essential for the formula-based criteria used to determine the award amount to the applicant schools. Continued approval of the revised NFLP—Program Specific Data Form will allow HRSA to more efficiently capture data to generate the formula-based award. Addition of Line Item D2, NFLP Loan Fund Default Rate, will allow HRSA to easily assess and consider an existing performance standard for those applicants with existing NFLP loan accounts. Used in combination with an existing NFLP institution’s self-reported NFLP loan balance, addition of Line Item D3, Last NFLP Student Loan Award, will allow HRSA to assess the loan fund activity (i.e., incidence of loans to students) of an existing NFLP institution applying for additional funding.

nursing faculty. Following graduation from the NFLP lending school, 
loan recipients may receive up to 85 percent NFLP loan cancellation 
over a consecutive 4-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 loans that go into
