FISCAL AND ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT FOR ADMINISTRATIVE RULES

RULE TITLE:  Health Care Educator Loan Forgiveness Program

I.ESTIMATED IMPLEMENTATION COSTS (SAVINGS) TO STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS (Summary)

The proposed rule adds Chapter 16 to the Scholarship and Grant Program Rules to implement the Health Care Educator Loan Forgiveness Program. The purpose of the program is to provide an incentive for individuals to study for and receive an advanced degree in Nursing or Allied Health education and to become postsecondary education faculty members in the field of Registered Nursing or top demand Allied Health education, thus filling critical staffing shortages in these areas. The agency’s 2008-2009 budget includes $2.2 million to support this program. It is anticipated that this funding will continue until the staffing shortage is resolved.  

II.ESTIMATED EFFECT ON REVENUE COLLECTIONS OF STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL UNITS (Summary)

The shortage of qualified Nursing and Allied Health program instructors and faculty at the state’s colleges and universities has caused the schools to limit enrollment in these programs, which perpetuates the shortage of nurses and allied health professionals. The Health Care Educator Loan Forgiveness Program will help the schools increase their faculty and allow them to increase their student enrollment. Additional students will result in an increase in self generated revenues for these schools through the collection of tuition in the outyears.
