U.S. Army Cadet Command Nursing Program


If you’re considering an undergraduate nursing degree, enrolling in 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. The autonomy to practice nursing as part of the Army Health Care Team is unlike civilian health care facilities. Your professional judgment will be the driving force behind ensuring that all aspects of a patient’s care are addressed, and you’ll be responsible for initiating coordination of a patient’s multidisciplinary care.

Upon graduation from college with a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing, you will become part of an elite organization that protects the health of our nation’s fighting forces. It is a position of great responsibility, high expectations, learning and adventure. You will immediately be given more responsibility, sooner and with greater authority than you would expect in the private sector. You will refine the leadership skills you developed in ROTC as you serve your country.

Nurse Summer Training Program


Nursing cadets may elect to attend the Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP) clinical elective. This program provides nursing students an opportunity to further develop and practice leadership and clinical skills typically between their junior and senior year of nursing. The three-week program is voluntary, although highly recommended. Nursing cadets will work at various Military hospitals throughout the country and overseas. Students will be assigned an Army Nurse Corps officer as their preceptor/instructor to guide them through the nursing process for three weeks.

Army Nurse Corps Opportunities


The Army Nurse Corps has 6 clinical specialty training courses. These specialty courses are offered as 12-16 week fully funded courses in the following areas: Intensive Care, Emergency, OB/GYN, Psychiatric, Community Health, and Peri-operative Care.



Army ROTC offers two, three, or four-year scholarships for undergraduate nursing students. Scholarships pay full tuition, $1,200 annual book costs, one-time $650 clinical fee, and a monthly $420.00 tax-free stipend.
