The St. John’s United Nursing Apprentice Fellowship program was launched in June, 2020. The purpose of the program is to provide nursing school tuition assistance and career applicable employment to students pursuing their LPN or RN degrees.

This program is a collaborative venture between St. John’s United and the Montana Youth Apprenticeship Partnership (MYAP), which seeks to increase opportunities for Montana’s young people to prepare for in-demand careers through the development and expansion of youth apprenticeship program models.

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.
