Norton Healthcare is now taking applications for the next Student Nurse Apprenticeship Program (SNAP) cohort. Students set to graduate in December 2020 to June 2021 should apply by Oct. 1.
The program is the first pre-licensure nursing apprenticeship program in the United States and is designed for student nurses interested in learning and growing within Norton Healthcare.
“SNAP benefits both a new generation of nurses and Norton Healthcare,” said Brittany Burke, R.N., manager, Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing. “By bringing student nurses into our facilities, we are not only increasing their readiness for practice, we are teaching them our values and standard of care so they are ready to join the Norton Healthcare family upon graduation.”
Applicants must be actively enrolled in a regionally accredited Bachelor of Science in nursing or associate degree in nursing program and in good academic standing. Applicants must provide the following:
- The most recent transcript from the nursing program in which the applicant is enrolled
- An up-to-date résumé
- An American Heart Association Basic Life Support provider card
- Two letters of recommendation from nursing faculty members. If currently employed in a
health care setting, one letter should be from the employer.
- A personal statement: Why did you choose nursing as a profession? What are your goals for graduation? How does enrolling in the nursing apprenticeship program assist you in accomplishing those goals?
