Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 5. Department of Health
Chapter 542. Rules and Regulations Governing the Virginia Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Midwife Scholarship Program
7/8/2020

12VAC5-542-100. Repayment by Practice.

It is the intent of the Virginia Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Midwife Scholarship Program that recipients repay their scholarship obligation by practice. Each recipient electing to repay by practice shall notify the commissioner in writing of his proposed practice location not more than 30 days following beginning of employment. Written approval of the practice location will be sent the recipient by the commissioner. A recipient will receive one year of credit toward fulfillment of his scholarship application for each 12 months of full-time (minimum of 40 hours per week) continuous practice. Absences from practice in excess of seven weeks per 12-month practice period for maternity leave, illness, vacation, or any other purpose shall not be credited toward repayment and will extend the recipient's total obligation by the number of weeks of excess absence. Any recipient who partially completes a scholarship obligation will be required to fulfill the remainder of the scholarship obligation by cash repayment in accordance with 12VAC5-542-110. Credit for partial years of service will be applied toward fulfillment of the scholarship obligation.
