MedStar Georgetown University Hospital was the first hospital in the nation's capital to achieve Magnet® Recognition.
Summer in the City
Each summer, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital hosts more than fifty nursing students from around the country for a ten-week nurse technician program. Here, students gain valuable, hands-on experience that sets them apart. Our paid externship helps nursing students discover new nursing specialties through paid shadow days. Bi-weekly Lunch and Learn meetings engage nurse technicians in conversations about professional and clinical topics and prepare them for their next role as new graduate nurses. Our nurse technicians even explore Washington, D.C. on a fun local scavenger hunt, an experience that allows them to get to know the city and each other.
Paid internships are available in most specialty areas, and the opportunity to apply for a $10,000 scholarship is available exclusively to participants.
Upcoming Program Start Date: May 28, 2019
