SK expands student loan forgiveness for nurses, nurse practitioners  


The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that it will expand the Saskatchewan Loan Forgiveness for Nurses and Nurse Practitioners program to the communities of Prince Albert, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, Yorkton, and the Battlefords. Under this program, nurses and nurse practitioners who start employment in the communities on or after January 1, 2023 can have up to $20K of their provincial student loan debt forgiven. “This initiative will not only alleviate financial burden but also encourage myself and other nursing students to see a future where we can stay and serve our community of Prince Albert as registered nurses,” said USask nursing student Precious Alozie.
