Nursing students can take Army ROTC in college along with their other studies and begin their professional careers as officers in the Army Nurse Corps (ANC). Nursing is clearly a demanding profession that requires a cool head and clear thinking. NAU Army ROTC will facilitate the development of skills that will help you realize your leadership and management potential.

Nursing Scholarships: Army ROTC at NAU offers special scholarships and other incentives to nursing majors.
One of the unique training opportunities for nurses in Army ROTC is the Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP).
You will not find anywhere else the kind of direct, hands-on experience you will receive in ROTC training. You will be given significant responsibilities early in your career. Leadership. An officer is a leader. That's why leadership and management are stressed as part of the ROTC nursing program. The Army provides nursing students with unique training to develop the kind of skills that will help you take command. Advancement. There is no mystery about how to get ahead in the Army Nurse Corps.
Promotions are based on performance, and the career path is clear cut. You will be given the opportunity to progress in rank as your nursing proficiency and effective leadership traits are demonstrated. Professional Environment. As an Army Nurse, you are an important member of the health care team. You've been given the training to meet problems head-on and solve them quickly, adapting to the situation and taking charge. You are a thinker and decision-maker, earning the respect of your colleagues and the people who work for you.
While you follow the same duty schedule as your preceptor during the NSTP, you could receive training in the following areas: As assessment of vital signs and other measurements and observations
Weekly group sessions will monitor your performance and enhance your progress. And by summer's end, NSTP Clinical Elective will have shown you a preview of the real world of nursing, developed your professional skills, and given you valuable insights into your abilities.
