If you're considering an undergraduate or graduate Nursing degree, joining Army ROTC can enhance your leadership skills and critical thinking abilities while providing financial support to help make your professional goals a reality.
Being a Nurse in the Army provides you with opportunities not found in the civilian world. As an Army Nurse and Officer, you will have the respect of your peers and coworkers, as well as opportunities to train and serve in a variety of specialties.
Army ROTC and Undergraduate Nursing
Army ROTC can offer you unique nursing opportunities while receiving financial assistance for college. You will get valuable leadership experience and management training that can benefit you in either a military or private-sector nursing career.
There are many two-, three- or four-year Army ROTC Nurse Scholarships available for those pursuing a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP)
Army ROTC Nurse Cadets have an opportunity for a unique paid summer nursing experience. The three-week Nurse Summer Training Program assigns Cadets to Army hospitals throughout the U.S. and Germany.
The program introduces you to the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to the roles and responsibilities of an Army Nurse Corps Officer. Under the supervision of an experienced Army Nurse Corps Officer, you will obtain hands-on experience. Your one-on-one clinical experience will allow you to hone your clinical skills, develop your problem-solving techniques and become comfortable with developing your professional skills as a member of the U.S. Army Healthcare Team.
