Unlicensed Assistive Personnel (UAP)
Like many areas across the country, rural and critical access hospitals in eastern Montana faced a shortage of registered nurses (RNs). Montana Health Network (MHN) implemented a program to recruit nursing students to work at rural hospitals as Unlicensed Assistive Personnel (UAP), with the hope that these students will return to the hospitals after graduation. The program offered a loan forgiveness program to RN students who returned to an MHN member hospital and worked for at least two years after graduating from nursing school. The program started in 2009. In 2005, the Montana Board of Nursing adopted rules that allow nursing students to be employed as Unlicensed Assistive Personnel (UAPs).
