Ocean Medical Center Nurses to Receive Forfar Nursing Scholarships September 19

The Barbara Forfar Nursing Scholarship committee will present its 2014 scholarships on Friday, September 19 at 4:00 p.m. in the main lobby of Ocean Medical Center, located at 425 Jack Martin Boulevard, Brick, New Jersey. Community members are welcome to attend.

The award ceremony will mark the fourth consecutive year that scholarships have been awarded to Ocean Medical Center team members. During its first three years, the Barbara Forfar Nursing Scholarship Fund has awarded $7,000 to help aid the formal nursing education of fourteen nurses and nursing students from Ocean Medical Center.

The Barbara Forfar Nursing Scholarship Fund was established in 2011. It provides monetary assistance to qualified nurses and nursing students of Ocean Medical Center who desire to continue their formal education in nursing profession. It was created to honor the memory of long-time Point Pleasant resident Barbara Forfar or "Foof" as she was called by her fellow nurses and other colleagues in the operating room, and her forty-four years of dedication to the nursing profession with all but three years of her service associated with the Ocean Medical Center.
