MinuteClinic and the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies have partnered to offer the "Together We Care" nurse practitioner scholarship.
CVS/pharmacy customers can help raise money for the scholarships by purchasing select Johnson & Johnson products at any of the more than 7,000 CVS locations. For each product purchased, Johnson & Johnson will donate 10 cents toward scholarships, up to $100,000.
"As one of the nation's largest employers of nurse practitioners, we know that these dedicated professionals will play an essential role in helping to address the nation's primary care practitioner shortage and make high-quality, convenient and affordable healthcare services more accessible to the American public," said Paulette Thabault, chief NP officer for MinuteClinic.
Scholarships will be awarded this spring. Thirty scholarships worth $2,500 each will be awarded to NPs and up to five scholarships worth $5,000 each will be awarded to DNP students.
Scholarship applications will be accepted through May 1. For more information, visit www.minuteclinic.com/scholarship.
