(Apr 08, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, April 8 – State Reps. Roni Green, D-Phila., and Melissa Shusterman, D-Chester/Montgomery, announced the introduction of legislation to provide Pennsylvania health workers with student loan forgiveness. The loan forgiveness program would reward nurses and employees of personal care and assisted living facilities who have been forced on the front lines of the COVID-19 public health emergency. “Through a loan forgiveness program, we can reward and support these front-line personnel working around the clock, while also encouraging more people to enter the caring professions,” Green said. Average monthly student loan payments are $196 for nurses with an associate’s degree and $234 for those with a bachelor’s. Nurses with a master’s degree face monthly bills of $544, on average. Providing loan forgiveness for nurses would bring much needed financial relief to ensure the well-being and safety of those who work so hard to safeguard the health of Pennsylvanians. The measure would also demonstrate that the commonwealth values and appreciates the contributions nurses and health workers make caring for the most vulnerable and working at the forefront of the difficult and growing COVID-19 pandemic. “Nurses and personal care workers rarely get the recognition they deserve for the vital work they do during normal times, making it more important than ever that we say thank you to them for being Read more
