This summer seven Cadets from the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program were selected for Cadet Command sponsored internships. Our first Cadet, Sarah Mullen recently returned from her nursing internship at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland just outside of Washington, D.C. Our next Cadet, Josiah Bryan departed for his nursing internship on June 30th at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Ft. Bliss, Texas.

For the next month Cadet Bryan will learn all the roles and responsibilities of being a nurse while being under the supervision of an experienced Army Nurse Corps Officer. He will also obtain hands on experience in various clinical specialties such as labor and delivery, pediatrics, emergency room, etc. Cadet Bryan’s internship is part of the Nurse Summer Training Program. This program selects qualified nursing Cadets to intern at Army Medical Department (AMEDD) hospitals around the world.
