Note:  Prospective or current NMU Nursing students are not currently eligible for either a National or Campus-Based Army ROTC Nursing Scholarship.  Army ROTC Nursing Scholarships are only awarded to students who attend "direct admit" Nursing Programs.  The NMU Nursing Program does not directly admit incoming freshman to the Nursing Program; therefore, we are currently unable to offer either the National or Campus-Based Army ROTC Nursing Scholarship at NMU.  Students who wish to pursue an Army ROTC Nursing Scholarship are encouraged to apply via the "National" link below.  

Prospective Nursing Program students and students accepted to the NMU Nursing Program may participate in the ROTC Basic Course (freshman and sophomore years).  However, the opportunity to graduate from the NMU Nursing Program and to commission as an Active Duty Army Nurse is limited, on a case by case basis, based upon the needs of the Army in a given graduation year.   Nursing Students who desire to serve as Army Nurses will be considered, on a case by case basis, during the sophomore year.  Students who are not successful in gaining admission to NMU's Nursing Program, or who elect to pursue other academic majors, may continue to participate in ROTC, are eligible for scholarships and tuition assistance, and may become commissioned officers upon graduation.

2.  ROTC will pay up to $600 for NCLEX-RN exam prep course after graduation
3.  First attempt NCLEX-RN examination fee (approximately $200) is reimbursed in full
4.  Guaranteed accession into Army Nurse Corps as long as cadet passes NCLEX-RN within 2 attempts
