While the whole nation faces a shortage of healthcare professionals, rural areas like Kingman, Arizona are heavily impacted. According to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, Kingman is a health professional shortage area (HPSA).

Our community deserves access to quality healthcare providers and excellent care. That’s why Kingman Regional Medical Center participates in multiple programs to help our health professionals repay existing educational loans while they provide care in a medically underserved area.

Loan Repayment Opportunities

Arizona State Loan Repayment Program

The Arizona SLRP provides loan repayment assistance to healthcare professionals, including physicians, advanced practice providers, pharmacists, and behavioral health providers, who provide outpatient primary care services in a HPSA.

Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

Nurse Corps LRP offers loan repayment to registered nurses (RN), advanced practice registered nurses (APRN), and nursing faculty in exchange for a two-year service commitment at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses (or, for nurse faculty, an eligible school of nursing). Additional loan repayment is available for a third year of service.

The program gives special consideration to nurses and nurse faculty who specialize in women’s health to combat disparities that put women at risk before, during, and after pregnancy. There is also special consideration for psychiatric nurse practitioners to promote the integration of mental health, substance use disorders, and other behavioral health services into primary care.
