EATONTOWN – Four undergraduate nursing students in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the lucky recipients of $500 scholarships courtesy of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), which is headquartered in Eatontown.

The scholarship winners, Joan Leung Lo Hing of Ocean Grove, Rosemarie Davis of Iselin, Darlene Johnson of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Rebecca de Jong of Somerset, were awarded based on their applications and an essay explaining what inspired them to attend nursing school.
