Rivier University in Nashua is offering new full-tuition scholarships for licensed practical nurses employed at nursing homes. The scholarships will allow recipients to earn associate of science in nursing degrees, which is a prerequisite for becoming a registered nurse. The program, called Project Advance, is funded from a $600,000 gift from an anonymous donor.
Classes are held on nights and weekends so students can work full-time. Applications are due June 22.
