If nursing is your professional goal, there is no better place to begin your career than the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). Army ROTC offers you a unique opportunity to gain practical experience while you receive financial assistance for college. Nursing majors compete for 2, 3 or 4-year scholarships. ROTC enhances your undergraduate nursing education or graduate nursing education by providing the unique leadership and management training, along with the practical experience needed for success, either in the Army or in a civilian career. You will develop your professional skills while you learn some meaningful things about yourself and what you can accomplish. You will also develop leadership skills, self-confidence, flexibility, and adaptability while having fun. As an ROTC nurse Cadet, you will be able to combine college electives in military science and invaluable nurse summer training experience with your nursing program.
After obtaining your baccalaureate degree and meeting the prerequisites, you will receive a commission as an Army Nurse Corps (ANC) Officer. Once you have identified your assignment choices, you will be ready to take on the challenges of your profession in one of the Army hospitals in the U.S., Germany, or Korea. As an Officer, you'll 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 where is starts for the future leaders of the Army Nurse Corps. Take advantage of the ROTC edge.
