The Barbara “Foof” Forfar Nursing Scholarship Fund was established on January 15, 2011 and is part of the Ocean Medical Center Foundation family of funds.

The fund was established to honor the memory of 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.

The Barbara “Foof” Forfar Nursing Scholarship Fund awards one (or more) $500 nursing scholarship during September of each year to eligible employees of the Ocean Medical Center.

On September 19, 2011 the fund awarded its first ever scholarships totaling $1,500 to three members of the Ocean Medical Center staff in a presentation ceremony held at the Ocean Medical Center campus in Brick.
