Saint Anne’s Hospital Announces Scholarship Program for Nursing Students

Fall River, MA – Saint Anne’s Hospital invites students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in the 2022-2023 academic year to apply for this year’s Nursing Memorial Scholarship in memory of Darcy E. Nientimp, BSN, RN.

Darcy was a Saint Anne’s Hospital ICU nurse who passed away in February 2015 at the age of 26, just six months after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Funded by donations from the community, this nursing memorial scholarship was established in 2015 to honor Darcy’s memory by helping others pursue a nursing career with passion and excellence, just as she did.

Registered nurses who are pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing are eligible. Applications must be completed and submitted no later than Friday, April 8.
