SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference, in compliance with Section SUMMARY: 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Information Collection Request Title: Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP), Annual Performance Report Financial Data Form, OMB No. 0915–0314— Revision. Abstract: This clearance request is for approval of a revision to the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, Annual 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 an award to a participating school for the NFLP loan fund, which must be maintained in a distinct account. Each school of nursing then 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 prepares the students 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 full-time faculty at a school of nursing. The NFLP lending school collects the 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 NFLP–APR Financial Data Form collects financial data online through HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks to capture the NFLP loan fund account activity related to financial receivables, disbursements, and borrower account data regarding employment status, loan cancellation, loan repayment, and collections. Participating schools 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 must keep records of all NFLP loan fund transactions. The revised NFLP–APR Financial Data Form no longer includes nursing student demographic data, which is collected under another form (OMB approval number 0915–0061). As a result, the annual burden is estimated to decrease by 440 hours. The information requested from participating schools in the revised NFLP–APR Financial Data Form is not available from any other source. In accordance with statute and program guidelines, the NFLP–APR Financial Data Form is used to monitor grantee performance by collecting information related to the NFLP loan fund operations and financial activities for the July 1 through June 30 academic year. Participating schools must submit the NFLP–APR Financial Data Form annually. Likely Respondents: Participating NFLP schools are required to adhere to reporting requirements. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This burden includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, Annual 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

loan fund, which must be maintained in a distinct account. Each school 
of nursing then 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 prepares the 
students 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 full-time faculty at a school of nursing. The NFLP lending 
school collects the 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 NFLP-APR Financial 
Data Form collects financial data online through HRSA's Electronic 
Handbooks to capture the NFLP loan fund account activity related to 
financial receivables, disbursements, and borrower account data 
regarding employment status, loan cancellation, loan repayment, and

percent, (6) number of NFLP graduates employed as nurse faculty, and 
(7) other related loan fund costs and activities. Participating schools 
must keep records of all NFLP loan fund transactions.
    The revised NFLP-APR Financial Data Form no longer includes nursing 
student demographic data, which is collected under another form (OMB 
approval number 0915-0061). As a result, the annual burden is estimated 
to decrease by 440 hours. The information requested from participating 
schools in the revised NFLP-APR Financial Data Form is not available 
from any other source.
    In accordance with statute and program guidelines, the NFLP-APR 
Financial Data Form is used to monitor grantee performance by 
collecting information related to the NFLP loan fund operations and 
financial activities for the July 1 through June 30 academic year. 
Participating schools must submit the NFLP-APR Financial Data Form

    Likely Respondents: Participating NFLP schools are required to 
adhere to reporting requirements.
