ROTC Nursing Program @ WSSU

With real world experience you may not find in nursing school alone, nursing students who are also Army ROTC Cadets benefit from extensive one-on-one mentoring and training. You’ll find out exactly what it takes to become a leader in your medical field.

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.

Army ROTC’s Nurse Summer Training Program will give you the opportunity to truly fulfill the promises of your training after graduation. Coordinating and communicating patient care, you’ll be in a clear position to succeed.


There are many continuing education programs for Army Nurses. These opportunities include Advanced Civil Schooling, in which the nurse attends a civilian college or university at the expense of the military, and receives full pay and benefits while in school.

There are also many programs available for Nurses should they choose to specialize in any one of many disciplines. These include: Obstetrics  Gynecology, Critical Care,  Psychiatric and Mental Health, Emergency, and Preventive Medicine.


Army ROTC program offers two-, three- or four-year scholarships for undergraduate nursing students. View the slideshow below for detailed information.
