Student Nurse Tech Program - Begins Only in the Summer



Earn while you learn . . .  as a Student Nurse Tech

The Student Nurse Tech Program (SNTP) at Metroplex Health System (MHS) offers nursing students an opportunity to work on technical skills in the real work environment and receive financial compensation. Your clinical experience will include nurse-aide type responsibilities in a medical-surgical unit or in special care unit such as emergency room, maternal-child or others. Your experience will be guided by a registered nurse.

Join the real world of nursing . . . before you graduate

The transition from the classroom to the working world is always a challenge, especially in the world of healthcare. Before assuming primary responsibility for the care of your patients, and while you are attending an academic nursing program, you want to have as much supervised clinical experience as possible.

Upon graduation from nursing school, the student nurse tech will enter the workforce with enhanced preparation skills making the transition from student to registered nurse easier.
