A couple of our Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Cadets were featured this week on the official Army website. Cadets Sarah Mullen and Josiah Bryan were featured in an article about their nursing internships this summer:

Summers during college usually invoke images of beaches, seeing old friends, or perhaps even working a summer job. As members of Eastern Washington University’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and Nursing program, summers are much different, much more challenging, and much more rewarding.
Cadets Sarah Mullen and Josiah Bryan successfully completed the U.S. Army’s Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP) at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the William Beaumont Army Medical Center. NSTP is a competitive internship program where Cadets train with Army Nurse Corps Officers in Military Medical Centers, giving them work experience unlike any other, and usually their first exposure of working in a military medical facility. These experiences serve as an introduction to military healthcare, practices, organizational structures, and other nuanced cultural aspects not typically seen in civilian hospitals. [Army.mil]

Finally, thank you to our EWU ROTC Assistant Professor of Military Science, Captain Colton Crawford for writing the article and the Cadet Command Public Affairs Office for selecting it for publication.
