Frequently Asked Questions
In fact, there are several LPNs in the commercials; two of the men are LPNs, as is the woman with the short white hair. Additionally, one of the men is featured in a poster for the Campaign.
We are absolutely dedicated to nurses of all kinds, including LPNs, and we apologize if the commercial has led you to believe otherwise.
I find your commercials to be too "touchy feely." Can you change them to focus more on the challenges of the nursing profession?
We have produced many videos and commercials, some of which focus more on technical aspects of the nursing profession, as well as the caring and compassion of nurses. We recognize the incredible difficulty of the job, and the skill required for nursing, and we focus on encouraging people to develop these skills and learn more about educational opportunities and specialization on our website, www.discovernursing.com, where you can also order materials and videos: www.discovernursing.com/free-materials-brochures.
At this time, we currently have no involvement with job placement in any capacity, as we're focused on recruitment, retention, and fundraising at the national level. For job placement in your area, we'd suggest trying www.nurse.com. For jobs within The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, please visit the main website at www.jnj.com.
For specific questions about foreign nurses practicing in the US, please visit the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools at www.cgfns.org.
At this time, we have chosen not to advertise locally as we're focusing Campaign resources on commercial advertising time, recruitment materials, and raising funds for future nurses.
You can become an advocate for nursing by sending your name, mailing address, and scrub top size to email@example.com. The "Nurses Who Make a Difference" program is a volunteer-only program.
Because our staff is so small and we are travelling for our fundraisers, we are no longer able to send out speakers through the Campaign for Nursing’s Future, nor are we able to sponsor individual speakers for conferences or similar events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We do encourage the use of any and all of our videos, however.
Absolutely! We just need 150-200 words on your life and career, a digital photo.
Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and guidelines.
The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future operates on a very small staff and budget, and we focus our resources on fundraising events. While we would love to hire the number of immensely-qualified nurses who express interest in the Campaign every year, we regret that this is impossible. However, if you’d like to write your profile for the site, we would love to have it!
Can The Johnson & Johnson of Companies send products for me to use in presentations, career fairs, programs?
We don’t send out products through the Campaign, but you are welcome to order the free materials that we do offer (like pens, posters, and magnets) through the website, at: http://www.discovernursing.com/free-materials-brochures
Johnson & Johnson has made the decision to work with the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) to provide scholarships to new students and the National League of Nursing (NLN) to provide scholarships to nurses who wish to become faculty. We feel that the NSNA and the NLN are best able to appropriate funds on our behalf. Please check www.nsna.org or www.nln.org for more information. If you live in one of these areas, there is scholarship money available now.
If none of these scholarships apply to you, please continue to check the scholarship database on www.discovernursing.com, check with your financial aid counselor, and contact local civic organizations in your community such as the Rotarians and the Lion's Club.
