Nursing Program

There are advantages in Army ROTC that are not found in traditional nursing programs. As an ROTC nursing student, you’ll combine college electives in military science with your regular nursing program. 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.

After obtaining your baccalaureate degree and meeting the prerequisites, you will receive a commission as an Army Nurse Corps (ANC) officer. 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 it starts for the future leaders of the Army Nurse Corps. Take advantage of the ROTC edge!
