Summer Nurse Trainee Programs

The Nurse Trainee position (formerly called the Child Care Technician (CCT) position) is for nursing students who are at least one-half of the way through their nursing program and have completed a medical/ surgical and/ or pediatric clinical rotation. This is a temporary full-time summer position. Children’s National offers two programs for Nurse Trainees.  

The LAUNCH Program
The LAUNCH Program is for nursing students who are at least one-half of the way through their nursing program and have completed a medical/surgical and/or pediatric clinical rotation. This 12- to 14-week paid summer internship includes a four-day orientation, additional clinical orientation to an assigned unit and the opportunity to work closely with a nurse manager, preceptor and supervisor. As a LAUNCH Nurse Trainee (formally known as a Child Care Technician) you will experience what it really is like to be a pediatric nurse and you will be able to complete all the tasks a certified nursing assistant may perform.

For 2018, the program will have two start dates: May 21 and June 4. 

Applications are only accepted for posted positions. Nursing students from all accredited nursing schools are welcome to apply.
