Licensed Practical Nursing Program

Bartlett Regional Hospital is excited offer a licensed practical nursing (LPN) program in partnership with Alaska Pacific University (APU).

The LPN program is designed to develop students to provide culturally safe, evidence-based, patient-centered nursing care to restore, promote, and maintain physical and mental health throughout their lifespan in various healthcare settings. APU teaches students to demonstrate clinical judgment to make patient-centered care decisions within the scope of practical nursing practice.

Over two semesters, using the integration of culturally relevant care activities to improve patient care, students will learn how to demonstrate patient advocacy, incorporate families and recognize groups in ways that promote self-determination, integrity, and growth as human beings and to respect the diversity of individuals.

Incorporating principles of communication and collaboration, students learn to work as part of healthcare teams in professional settings to promote movement toward optimal levels of health for patients. Utilizing evidence-based methods, assessments, technologies, and management systems to guide and communicate decisions that promote optimal outcomes, students utilize both traditional and academic knowledge to advance the health of Alaska native, indigenous, and underserved populations.

Review the Juneau LPN program requirements and Fall 2023 cohort timeline here.

APU representatives will be on the hospital campus April 11 (4-6pm) and April 12 (8-9am) to meet with prospective students and answer questions. Both sessions will be held in the boardroom on the second floor of the Robert A. Valliant Administration Building.

Summer High School Internships - STEP Program

Bartlett will be introducing summer high school internship opportunities starting in 2023! Internships are a great way to introduce Juneau's rising adults to health care options, provide hands-on learning opportunities, add value to clinical and non-clinical units by involving interns in tasks, and sharing their passion with the next generation of health care workers.

Our program is designed to excite and promote young adult learners to go into health care and supporting fields and ultimately, we hope they'll return to us here at Bartlett!

Summer Healthcare Training Program for College Students

Bartlett will be offering a healthcare training program in the summer of 2023! Our goal is to introduce and familiarize university/college students with the social and working culture at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

During the summer session, college level students will work in a designated care area (clinical and non-clinical available) and have the opportunity to shadow skilled professionals, gaining valuable experience in healthcare fields and exposure to work in the hospital setting. There will be ample opportunities to learn new skills, practice assessments, view procedures, and make connections from theory to practice specific to the healthcare program in which the student is interested in.

Our program is designed to help enrich clinical time for those students that have completed one semester of a college level program.
