Saint Xavier University’s School of Nursing has received a generous gift of $7,000 from Take Care Health Systems to provide a scholarship for a student in the School’s graduate Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program. SXU’s FNP program prepares professional nurses as specialists in the delivery of primary care services in a wide variety of settings. The program emphasizes health promotion and wellness, and the management of common and complex health problems.
Take Care Health Systems, a subsidiary of Walgreens, manages Healthcare Clinics in more than 400 Walgreens stores around the country. The company’s goal is to expand its footprint by bridging gaps in patient care and providing greater access to affordable, convenient health care services. Nurse practitioners are at the center of the Take Care Health Systems model of patient care, and the company is committed to supporting educational opportunities for nurse practitioners. As part of the scholarship award, the selected FNP student will complete a clinical rotation with a certified Take Care Health preceptor at a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic.
SXU’s School of Nursing is one of only 17 nursing education programs in the country designated as a “Center of Excellence” by the National League for Nursing (NLN). The School received the prestigious designation for excellence in creating environments that enhance student learning and professional development. The support of Take Care Health Systems and other generous donors is an investment in our exceptional students and in the health of the communities they will serve after graduation.
