Nurse pinning ceremonyThere are advantages in Army ROTC that are not found in traditional nursing programs. As an ROTC nursing student, you will combine college electives in military science with your regular nursing program. You may also participate in an invaluable nurse summer training session. Please see our link to the right for more information on this Army Nurse internship. Overall, the Army Nurse Program will teach you the required professional skills needed to succeed in nursing, but it will also help you learn a great deal about yourself.

If nursing is your professional goal, there is no better place to begin your career than Army ROTC. Army ROTC offers you a unique opportunity to gain practical nursing experience while developing the leadership skills that will help you in any profession. Nursing majors may also compete for 2-, 3-, or 4-year scholarships to help pay for college or take advantage of other tuition assistance programs offered through Army ROTC. 

ROTC enhances your undergraduate nursing education or graduate nursing education by providing the unique leadership and management training alongside the practical experience needed for success, either in the Army or the civilian sector. You will also develop leadership skills, self-confidence, flexibility, and adaptability.

After obtaining your baccalaureate degree and meeting the military science requirements, you will receive a commission as an Army Nurse Corps (ANC) officer. Once you have identified your assignment choice, you will be ready to take on the challenges of your profession in one of the Army hospitals in the United States or Germany. As an officer, you will have the opportunity to lead, advance professionally, obtain specialized training, work with the latest medical technology, and serve with other highly trained medical personnel as an important member of the health care team.

Army ROTC is the perfect starting place for future leaders of the Army Nurse Corps. Take advantage of the ROTC edge.
