New York, NY — July 28, 2022Laurel Road, a digital platform of KeyBank with specialized offerings for health care professionals, is partnering with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP), the largest national professional association of nurse practitioners (NPs) in the U.S. Through this multi-year partnership, more than 120,000 members of AANP are eligible to receive a specialized discount on student loan refinancing through Laurel Road, as well as borrower bonuses on various product offerings.

“The past two years have put a strain on our health care workers, nurse practitioners included. At Laurel Road, we recognize that nurse practitioners play a vital role in our health care system, which is why providing them with the tools they need to achieve financial success and better their overall well-being is so important to us,” said Kaitlin Walsh-Epstein, Chief Marketing Officer for Laurel Road. “Partnering with AANP allows us to give back to nurse practitioners so they can focus on their professional and personal lives, knowing their financial future is intact.

“AANP values partnerships like Laurel Road’s because it aligns closely with AANP’s mission and ongoing efforts to support and empower nurse practitioners so they can focus on the health of their patients,” said Liz Messner, director of membership for AANP. “Our members will now have the resources and tools they need to improve their personal finances, bettering the lives of current members and future members as well.”
