Bristol Campus Recognizes Walgreens as Distinguished Community Employer

May 12, 2014

The Bristol Campus recently recognized Walgreens on East Stone Drive in Kingsport, Tennessee as a Distinguished Community Employer.  The award is reserved for those employers who show exceptional support of career education.  Walgreens has consistently offered National College graduates interviews and pharmacy technician positions.  This particular location has provided many students with externship experiences during which Walgreens employees spend time helping and mentoring students in a hands-on setting in preparation for their careers.

“The feedback I have gotten from the students is positive and most pursue a career with Walgreens based on their externship experience,” said Dr. Jessica Phillips, pharmacy technology director at the Bristol Campus.  Pharmacists at Walgreens have said that they are pleased with National’s students’ knowledge of pharmacy skills.  

Dr. Jessica Phillips and Dr. Gretchen Nangle accept the Distinguished Community Employer award on behalf of Walgreens in Kingsport, TN.
