MedStar Georgetown University Hospital has a very unique summer nurse tech program! For ten weeks each summer, MedStar Georgetown hosts 50 nursing students from around the country. Each nursing student is trained to work as a Nurse Tech and learns skills that are extremely valuable to their nursing education. This paid externship is not a shadow program. MedStar Georgetown also hosts bi-weekly Lunch and Learns, a local scavenger hunt, and other events to introduce the nursing students to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and the Washington D.C. area. Externships are available in most specialty areas and shadow days are available for participants throughout the summer.
