Saint Anne’s Hospital announces scholarship programs for health care students
Fall River, MA – Saint Anne’s Hospital invites students who will be pursuing higher education in health care in the 2023-2024 academic year to apply for two scholarship programs.
For registered nurses who are pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree: The 2023 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 for this year’s awards. Applications must be completed and submitted no later than Friday, March 31. Contact: [email protected].
For bicultural/bilingual health care students: The Saint Anne’s Hospital Multicultural Health Committee Scholarship Program is offering six $1,000 scholarships for students who are bicultural and/or bilingual and pursuing higher education in health care or a related field. Application deadline: Tuesday, May 9. Contact: 508-235-5289.
