NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (photo CAPTION) –  New Brunswick Health Sciences High School graduates Alisha Cook, a nursing student at Seton Hall University, second from left, and Stephanie Bravo, a nursing student at the College of New Jersey, were congratulated recently at Saint Peter’s University Hospital for their completion of a one-week summer nursing internship at the hospital.  The program was conducted in partnership with the New Brunswick Education Foundation. The foundation aided each student with a $1,000 scholarship funded by the Ratliff Family, a foundation donor, as the Elma R. Ratliff Memorial Nursing Career Scholarship. While at Saint Peter’s the students attended a hospital orientation session, shadowed a nurse recruiter, learned interviewing skills, attended a nursing self-governance day, and attended a clinical shadowing experience on the oncology unit. Also shown are, from left, sisters Belinda Ratliff, Sandra Lassiter and Gwen Ratliff, whose family funded the scholarship. Gwen is also a New Brunswick Education Foundation board member.
