Assembly Bill Would Increase Debt Break for Nurses
A bill by Assembly member Steve Knight (R-Palmdale) would allow nurses to eliminate up to $40,000 in student loans if they work at a prison or veterans home for four years. Currently, nurses can eliminate up to $20,000 in student debt if they participate in the State Nursing Assumption Program of Loans for Education-Nursing State Facilities. The Assembly Higher Education Committee unanimously approved the bill.
