What is the Pathways to Nursing Program?
The Pathways to Nursing program was created by the partnership of sriAHEC and the College of Nursing at the University of Rhode Island to recruit, support, retain and graduate educationally, economically or socially disadvantaged students, particularly from communities of color. Through appropriate sequencing or pacing of the Pathways to Nursing curriculum, mentoring and equipment support, the program aims to promote success for students and to connect graduates back to underserved Latino, Asian, Native and African American communities in Rhode Island.
