The St. Luke's Nurse Apprenticeship Program (SNAP) provides students with the opportunity to expand their nursing knowledge and critical thinking skills while working in direct patient care alongside experienced nursing professionals.
The program offers experience in a supportive and positive acute care environment for students to apply critical thinking and nursing knowledge while functioning in the role of a nurse apprentice. The purpose is to build relationships, gain knowledge, and learn the benefits of a nursing career at St. Luke's.
All SNAP participants are placed into either a float or unit-based position.
Once you've completed your first year in SNAP, your next stop will be our STAR Nurse Residency Program. This year-long program brings together new graduates who have fewer than 12 months of nursing experience to help in the transition from student nursing to successful management of a full patient load.
Participants have a two-year commitment and will be required to sign a repayment agreement should they leave St. Luke’s before the commitment term.
