Pathways Created

“I wouldn’t be where I am in my career without the opportunities provided by Catholic Charities NH. They helped me attain my Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) and become a registered nurse (RN) through a scholarship program between Rivier University and Catholic Charities NH. I don’t see any other organization doing what Catholic Charities is doing. They are giving people opportunities to grow in their career and you have no idea how that can change someone’s life. Just look at me.”

– Roxanne Perry, assistant nursing director at Mt. Carmel


“I am a single mom and barely balance all of my responsibilities without being in school. For that reason, I spent about 10 years as an LNA and nine as an LPN before attempting to obtain my RN two years ago. I believe God moved me to apply for the scholarship opportunity offered to Catholic Charities LPNs who wanted to pursue their education to become RNs. I have been impressed these last two years at how my schedule at St. Francis has been adjusted many times to accommodate my busy schedule as a Mom, student and LPN. My little family is so thankful and forever blessed by this opportunity to grow.“

– Angela Woodward, LPN with St. Francis


“Receiving the Project Advance RN Scholarship was such an amazing opportunity. It not only provided me with the financial means to pursue my degree, but it also gave me the motivation to stop waiting for the ‘perfect time’ and to go back to school now. It has truly been a blessing allowing me to pursue my dreams.”

– Karen Garrett, LPN at Mt. Carmel
