Education Programs

Nursing School

Through Rochester Regional Health, St. Lawrence Health has an extension site of the Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing.

Classes and Training are held in Old Snell Hall, Elm Street, Potsdam. 

Our Residency Programs

Pharmacy Residency training at Canton-Potsdam Hospital will prepare today’s pharmacists for the complexities of tomorrow’s patients. The PGY-1 pharmacy residency is a 12-month program designed to engage pharmacists in a clinically diverse environment.

St. Lawrence Health offers its new-to-practice nurses the opportunity to register for the Iowa Online Nurse Residency Program, which was developed with rural organizations in mind. Based on best practices and the latest research, the Nurse Residency Program’s one year curriculum addresses competencies that are weak or lacking in new nurse graduates.

 How to Become a Volunteer 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at an SLH hospital, but at the present time, new volunteers are not being trained.

To become a volunteer you must be at least 14 years of age and be able to commit to at least one two-hour shift per week for a minimum of eight weeks. Those interested must also successfully complete the Volunteer Services application process. The application process includes an online volunteer application, interview, criminal investigation check, drug screening, physical exam, immunizations if needed, and volunteer orientation. The criminal investigation check, drug screening, physical exam, and immunizations are provided at no cost to volunteers.

Volunteers who are 14-17 years of age are considered Junior Volunteers and are required to have parental authorization. Junior Volunteers, ages 14-15, will be placed in a non-patient care assignment.  Those 16 years of age and older can be placed in some patient care areas.
