Nursing Apprentice Fellowship

St. John’s United Nursing Apprentice Fellowship is a program designed to provide tuition assistance and career applicable employment while nursing students pursue their LPN or RN degrees. SJU Nursing Apprentice Fellows are exceptional students pre-selected to demonstrate they have a high likelihood to become nurses. There are no more than four fellowships awarded each year. A Fellow is offered practical paid experience at St. John’s as a Certified Nursing Assistant while pursuing a nursing degree.  An application is required for consideration.

The Career Ladder Program

St. John’s United wishes to encourage people of all ages to further their education and prosper in their careers. We especially encourage people to further themselves in areas that benefit the long-term care industry. In an effort to assist our employees financially, we have established a career ladder.
