Internships in Washington, D.C.
Viterbo University has a partnership with The Washington Center (TWC), an independent, nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C. that provides challenging opportunities for students to work and learn for academic credit. Viterbo students who apply and are accepted into The Washington Center Internship Program can register for 12 credits of internship in one semester at Viterbo (which will cover the program fees) and utilize any financial aid benefits to cover the housing fees. TWC will find a semester-long professional internship in the Washington, D.C. area to match your interests. In addition, you will also take an academic course and participate in their LEAD (Leadership, Engagement, Achievement & Development) Colloquium.
Nursing internships are not taken for credit and are not facilitated through the career services office. Nursing students can, however, participate in a for-credit internship experience in areas outside of nursing (for example, in your minor field of study).Junior nursing students looking for a nursing internship should plan on attending the Nursing Career Fair held every year in early November. A number of regional facilities hosting nursing internships attend that event to share information about their internship opportunities and application procedures.
