Three scholarships will be awarded to current PHCC nursing program students (or graduating high school students accepted into the PHCC nursing program) and three awards will be made to PHCC nursing students upon graduation of the program. Graduates will use the scholarship funds to enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program at Old Dominion University (ODU), the release said.
