Chapter 510. Regulations for General Assembly Nursing Scholarships

12VAC5-510-110. Deferment and waivers.

A. The requirement for continuous engagement in full-time nursing practice may be deferred by the board if the scholarship recipient requests a deferment to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree in nursing or related to nursing activities. This deferment, if granted, shall not relieve the recipient of the responsibility to complete the remaining portion of the obligation upon completion of the degree.

B. If the participant is in default due to death or permanent disability so as not to be able to engage in nursing practice in a region with a critical shortage of nurses in the Commonwealth, the participant or his personal representative may be relieved of his obligation under the contract to engage in nursing practice upon repayment of the total amount of scholarship received plus applicable interest. For participants completing part of the nursing obligation prior to becoming permanently disabled or in the event of death, the total amount of scholarship funds owed shall be reduced by the proportion of obligated years served. The obligation to make restitution may be waived by the board upon application of the participant or the participant's personal representative to the board.

C. Individual cases may be considered by the board for a variance of payment or service, pursuant to § 32.1-12 of the Code of Virginia, if the board finds compliance with the applicable service requirements or default repayment would pose an undue hardship on the recipient.

D. All requests for deferments, waivers, or variances shall be submitted in writing to the department for consideration and final disposition by the board.
