WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of National Nurse Practitioner Week (Nov. 11-17), MinuteClinic, the nation's largest provider of retail-based medical clinics, salutes the outstanding patient care delivered by nurse practitioners and continues to expand its role as a leader in creating educational and career development opportunities for members of the profession.

"As the shortage of primary care physicians continues to grow and nurse practitioners play an even larger role in patient care, we are committed to creating advancement opportunities for clinicians through a growing program of preceptorships, residencies, scholarships and grants."

MinuteClinic employs more than 2,000 nurse practitioners and physician assistants who treat patients at more than 600 walk-in medical clinics inside CVS/pharmacy stores in 25 states and the District of Columbia.
