ROTC Nursing

Page Content

Army nurses receive world-class training and serve in locations across the globe. If you’re considering a Nursing degree, joining Army ROTC can enhance your leadership skills and critical-thinking abilities while providing financial support to help make your personal and professional goals a reality. The Army is always looking for the most talented and qualified nurses to augment their force structure worldwide. You will find pride in knowing you are preparing to serve your country as an Army Nurse Corps Officer.

The Golden Eagle BN has two programs you can apply for through the USM College of Nursing and Health Professions and William Carey University School of Nursing.

Internship and Training Opportunities

The Army ROTC nursing program not only provides you with the classroom training that you need to be successful, but also provides numerous real world opportunities to work alongside some of the largest and most advanced hospitals in the Army inventory.  Some of the places where you will have the opportunity to train and gain experience can be found at:

  • Ft Benning, GA – Martin Army Community Hospital
  • Ft Bragg, NC- Womack Army Medical Center
  • Bethesda, MD – Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
  • Honolulu, HI – Tripler Army Medical Center
  • Kaiserslautern, Germany – Landstuhl Regional Medical Center

The Army Nurse Corps

The Army Nurse Corps recognizes that earning your BSN is an achievement to be proud of and is committed to providing educational opportunities. Once you become an Army Nurse, you may apply for specialty courses such as:

  • Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing 
  • Preoperative Nursing
  • Obstetrical and Gynecological Nursing 
  • Critical Care Nursing

Your ROTC Commitment

As a winner of a nursing scholarship, you're required to take an ROTC class, which demands a few hours of your time each week. Upon graduation, you have an obligation to accept a commission and serve full-time in the Active Army, or part-time in either the Army National Guard or the U.S. Army Reserve for at least 4 years. After the “obligation” phase, you may choose to stay on active duty or leave active service. If you decide to leave active service you will have additional obligations.

When to Apply

The application due date is at the beginning of senior year for high school students pursuing a career in nursing. College students may apply any time.  All high school applications are completed online. For college students, or if you would like to work with USM directly, contact our ROTC Enrollment and Scholarship Officer.
