Educational Opportunities at Tidelands Health

If you are interested in learning more about a health care career in a health system environment, Tidelands Health offers several opportunities for you to experience what a health care career can offer. Tidelands Health offers job shadowing for students and the chance to gain practical hours through our volunteer services, clinical rotation and register nurse apprenticeship programs.

Registered Nurse Apprenticeship Program

The registered nurse apprenticeship program at Tidelands Health is a paid apprenticeship that provides in-depth educational and clinical experiences for student nurses.
Students will engage in hands-on clinical learning, increase confidence by combining education with clinical practice, experience the importance of compassion in health care and become integrated into our Tidelands Health culture.
The registered nurse apprentice will work a maximum of 16 hours per month on a medical/surgical unit, partnering with an experienced RN preceptor.

The program is open to nurses who are in their senior year of a bachelor of science in nursing program or who have completed the first three semesters in an associate of science in nursing program.

Attractive incentives are available for newly licensed program participants who become employed at Tidelands Health as a registered nurse, including a sign-on bonus and education assistance.

Applications must be received by July 15, 2022, and space is limited. For more information, including how to apply, please click here for the program flier.

Shadowing
