About the Apprenticeship Program
The Nursing Apprenticeship Program provides participants the ability to work and receive pay while advancing their learning. The Associate Degree Nursing Apprenticeship is four semesters in length.
Apprenticeship Application Information
- Must be an active, current nursing student at Snead State Community College, at least 18 years of age.
- Students who have successfully completed NUR 112 are provided the opportunity to submit an apprenticeship application.
- A list of students who meet the minimum qualifications for apprenticeship if given to participating health care facilities.
- From that list, participating health care facilities select and hire apprentices, based on the number of open positions they have available. Current employees may be selected for the apprenticeship. All apprentices sign an apprenticeship agreement.
- Student apprentices must commit to working for the same health care facility for the entirety of the nursing program. Included in working days are clinical days students are performing for nursing program clinical requirements.
- Student apprentices must apply to the Alabama Board of Nursing for a nursing apprentice permit.
- Student apprentices are not paid for on-campus classes, labs, or simulation. Student apprentices are paid for clinical hours, not to include simulation.
- Student apprentices will work 1:1 with a registered nurse (mentor) from the health care facility. Students will be held accountable to the same clinical requirements as non-apprentice students in the program. For more information, please contact Dr. Lisa Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org or 256-840-4185.
The sponsor will not discriminate due to race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), sexual orientation, genetic information, disability, or age over 40 years. The sponsor will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in the apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 30. Right to Equal Opportunity: It is against the law for a sponsor of an apprenticeship program registered for Federal purposes to discriminate an apprenticeship applicant or apprentice based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age (40 years or older), genetic information, or disability. The sponsor must ensure equal opportunity with regard to all terms, conditions, and privileges associated with apprenticeship.
If you think that you have been subjected to discrimination, you may file a complaint within 300 days from the date of the alleged discrimination or failure to follow the equal opportunity standards with Josh Laney with the Alabama Office of Apprenticeship located at One Technology Court, Montgomery, Alabama 36116. Phone number is 334-280-4414 and email address is email@example.com. You may also be able to file complaints directly with the EECO, or State fair employment practices agency. If those offices have jurisdiction over the sponsor/employer, their contact information is listed below. The EEOC can be reached at 1-800-669-4000.
