Lee Health’s new program seeks to attract RN students
To fill the need for nursing assistants, Lee Health has introduced the Student Nurse Apprentice Program. SNAP gives students hands-on clinical experience and a pathway to a future career with the health system. It offers per diem positions for students enrolled in a nursing program who have completed their core foundational courses.
“It has never been more evident than right now; the critical role nurses play in providing highly skilled compassionate care,” Workforce Planning & Development Program Manager Jennifer Thayer said. “We are pleased to introduce the SNAP program and to have the opportunity to engage with our future generation of health care professionals who are instrumental to our continued journey toward excellence.”
Additional benefits of the program include:
– Competitive pay rate.
– Flexible scheduling to accommodate nursing school responsibilities.
– Experience with different nursing units and clinical specialties through implementation of the components of the plan of care related to basic human, mental health and social needs, comfort, safety, and emergency measures; activities of daily living; nutrition and personal care needs.
– Enhanced knowledge and experience as you move from student to professional nurse.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will gain priority consideration for selection to Lee Health’s RN Residency Program. SNAP is open year-round, and the opportunity is available to students inside and outside of the health system.
