Are you currently enrolled in a Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) program? AHS supports and encourages qualified nursing students to apply for Undergraduate Nursing Employee (UNE) positions. You will have the opportunity to apply your classroom skills and knowledge, in a real clinical setting, with real patients, under the mentorship of a RN or RPN. This is your chance to experience nursing as it happens – and get paid while you learn!
