Nurse pinning ceremony

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 shown on the "Nursing Scholarship" page.  

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.

There 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.
