The provincial government is helping the University of New Brunswick (UNB) launch a new program that will allow some nursing students to complete their studies closer to their home communities. The new program, called Learn Where You Live, will allow licensed practical nurses who are working toward their nursing degree to study and work in Miramichi or Moncton for years three and four of their program. Previously, these students would have been required to attend classes in Fredericton.
