The Student Nursing Assistant Program

 

The Student Nursing Assistant Program at San Joaquin General Hospital was developed to allow students who are currently enrolled in a collegiate-level registered nurse education program the opportunity to obtain paid work experience in an acute care hospital setting during academic and clinical training. 

This program consists of four levels in the classification series of Student Nursing Assistant. The Student Nursing Assistant II position is the second level. This program allows accepted students to enter part-time employment during the 1st semester of the approved registered nurse education program and continue employment through the last academic semester. As students progress through each level, continued employment is based upon successful academic achievement and satisfactory workplace performance.

Once a student obtains a Registered Nurse license or an Interim Permit, there may be opportunities for future employment as a licensed Registered Nurse at San Joaquin General Hospital.
