With us today is Sabrina Charles—who will be graduating, with Honors, from the Rutgers School of Nursing this May,” said Governor Phil Murphy in his speech. “Sabrina is doing her part to help resolve our nursing shortage. And we are going to keep doing our part to support many others like her who are pursuing a career of service.”
