    I worked at MedStar Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are a very welcoming community with hopes to move their nurses forward and provide them with the best orientation and education possible. I felt very supported as a I began my career as a nurse at Georgetown. I truly believe that this organization tries to live out its mission of Cura Personalis!

    Cons

    None to report. Overall, I felt very welcomes and happy as an employee.
