REFERENCES

Brad Wasson,
VP, Pharmacy Services: Health Systems Solutions, Walgreen Co.

“[Nathan] is one of those youths in their business experience that just goes about their business with incredible passion with little input / hand holding needed.”

Jim Langman
VP, Clinical Services, Walgreens Health Initiatives

“I give to Nathan my highest recommendation. Nathan has always been an extremely intelligent, hard working, honest and good natured part of our organization. His organizational skills, technical acumen, and people skills are the main reasons for the existence and success of the Walgreens Continuing Education website.”

Scott Miller
Director, Specialty Pharmacy Reporting and Informatics
Walgreen Co.

“Nathan was usually my “go to” person for designing, documenting, building, implementing, and doing post implementation analysis on a number of projects that were both directly under his responsibilities as well as help with other departments.

His work with the www.MyWalgreensCE.com website is a testament to his abilities. This project was initiated by an idea and a very small budget. With that I left it to Nathan to get a site up and running to serve thousands of pharmacists and technicians on a national basis. The requirements did not stop there. Working with the Accreditation Counsel of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) entails a large amount of very specific data collection and reporting. These requirements are very fluid as the Counsel is constantly trying to refine and better the process of re-educating practicing pharmacists and technicians.

In my new role there have also been many times that I have need to reach out to Nathan for some “alternative” thinking in order to help trouble shoot issues that have arisen.”

Nathan Taylor is a person that I can easily say that I would recommend without hesitation to fill any roll. His versatility, skills, team work, and ability to think out side of the box to devise solutions to issues would make him an extremely valuable asset.
