“The average annual income for registered nurses was an impressive $68,910 as of 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, considering today’s college money graphgraduates leave school with more than $30,000 in student loan debt on average, young professionals beginning their nursing careers face a long road to becoming debt free. For those with upwards of six figures in debt, paying it off could take decades.

Fortunately, there are many programs that can forgive this debt. In our “Complete Guide to Student Loan Forgiveness for Nurses”, we detail how nursing professionals can have their debt wiped away using general forgiveness programs such as Public Service Loan Forgiveness, national programs designed specifically for nurses seeking loan cancellation, as well as dozens of programs available on the local level.”

AndrAJew Josuweit is the CEO and President of Student Loan Hero, a company that combines easy-to-use tools with financial education to help the millions of Americans living with student loan debt manage their student loans smarter. Student Loan Hero has helped over 20,000 borrowers manage and eliminate over $1 billion in student loan debt since 2012.

  1. Excellent article to bring to mind!
    Plus, I still wonder is a nurse’s pay enough? An emergency room’s dead in the water without nurse’s, A complete standstill, FACT!

    • Great question, Tony. I’d love to hear from some nurses and it is so wonderful to hear an ED doctor speak up about the value ED nurses bring to the gurney! Thank you!

      I do think organizations that truly support nurses will consider excellence in many ways: salaries, staffing, continuing education, work-life balance, emotional support, child care!
