Nurse Summer Training Program


Nursing Cadets are given the amazing opportunity to take part in what is known as the Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP) through Army ROTC during the summer between their junior and senior years of college. NSTP is a 28-day-long, paid internship for Nursing Cadets to gain hands-on work experience on a unit of their choosing in an Army hospital within the United States or abroad (including Germany, South Korea, and Hawaii). 

The program introduces cadets to the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and the roles and responsibilities of an Army Nurse Corps Officer. Under the supervision and guidance of an experienced Army Nurse Corps Officer, you will obtain hands-on nursing experience while practicing essential nursing skills, applying clinical judgment, and communicating with the hospital chain of command. Your one-on-one clinical experience will allow you the opportunity to hone your clinical skills, develop problem-solving techniques and gain confidence as a member of the U.S. Army Healthcare Team.

Nursing cadets apply for NSTP through their designated Brigade Nurse Counselor during their junior years. This Brigade Nurse Counselor serves as a resource person and mentor to all nursing cadets within the local region during their entire college career to assist them as they transition from cadets to officers and prepare for their commission into the Army Nurse Corps.
