Our Race to Health Equity Diversity Nursing Scholarships

One way that Johnson & Johnson is working to eliminate health inequities for people of color is by investing in creating a diverse healthcare professional pipeline, including increasing BIPOC representation among nurses.
As part of Johnson & Johnson’s Our Race to Health Equity initiative, over $500,000 in scholarships were funded through the Foundation of the National Student Nurses Association. We were proud to provide scholarships to 67 Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) students this year. These students will play a key role in creating a world where health equity is a pillar of our society and our healthcare system. The scholarships are one part of a multi-pronged strategy to ensure access to high-quality and culturally competent health care for all.
