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.
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.
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.
