The Board of Registration in Nursing (Board) wishes to inform you that, the Healthcare Workforce Center (HWC) has established the Massachusetts Loan Repayment Program for Health Professionals.  The HWC mission is to improve access to health care in the Commonwealth by supporting policy making and programs which will assure optimal supply and distribution of primary care and other health professionals. 

The goal of the program is to provide educational loan repayment as an incentive for health professionals to practice in communities where significant shortages of health care providers and barriers to access have been identified.

The Board has added a link to the HWC to the Board’s website at under “Related Links”.
