If you're considering an undergraduate or graduate Nursing degree, joining 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 scholarships pay full tuition and fees per semester to the university OR $5,000 as a room and board payment per semester that pays directly to the student. Regardless of which option is chosen, the scholarship also pays a $600 book stipend per semester. To confirm an ROTC scholarship a student must contract as a cadet with the ROTC program. A contracted Cadet earns a monthly stipend during the academic school year of $420 per month.
The scholarship pays for your NCLEX study guide and the actual NCLEX itself.
Once you are a Registered Nurse, then you will attend the Nurse Officer Basic Course where you will use what you have learned at Murray State and apply it to a military hospital. There are many opportunities to get into many different specialty areas as well.
