Nurse Summer Training Program

Nursing students who are also Army ROTC Cadets have an opportunity for a unique summer nursing experience. The paid, three-week Nurse Summer Training Program assigns Cadets to Army hospitals throughout the U.S. and Germany.

The program introduces you to the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to the roles and responsibilities of an Army Nurse Corps Officer. Under the supervision of an experienced Army Nurse Corps Officer, you will obtain hands-on experience.

Your one-on-one clinical experience will allow you to hone your clinical skills, develop your problem-solving techniques and become comfortable with developing your professional skills as a member of the U.S. Army Healthcare Team.

The NSTP is a paid three-to-four week clinical elective for Army ROTC nurse Cadets. Attendance is voluntary.

This elective is conducted at Army hospitals in the United States, Germany and Korea. You get paid while attending NSTP during the same summer as Advanced Camp, which is usually between the junior and senior year of college.

During the NSTP clinical elective, you will receive "hands on" experience under the direct supervision of an Army Nurse Corps Officer who works with you one-on-one. Regular coaching sessions enhances your progress, while also providing feedback about your performance.

While you follow the same duty schedule as your sponsor, you could receive training in such areas as patient assessment, planning of patient care, nutrition maintenance and feeding techniques, range of motion and mobility, medication administration, emergency procedures, intravenous (IV) therapy, and other special procedures and techniques.
