The Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) was born when President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916. Since its inception, Army ROTC has provided leadership and military training at schools and universities across the country and has commissioned more than a half million Officers. It is the largest commissioning source in the American military.
Army ROTC is an Equal Opportunity program. We welcome all full-time students to try out the program and participate in our many activities. All eligible and qualified students have an opportunity to pursue an officer’s commission, regardless of gender, race or religion. ROTC promotes a physically fit lifestyle and provides a drug-free environment.
Army ROTC Cadets take a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major. Once a week they meet as a group for leadership laboratory, along with their regular ROTC academic class instruction. During lab, Cadets wear the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) and conduct military and leadership training. Students can take ROTC as an elective course or pursue the entire program, which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant—an Army Officer.
If you’re considering an undergraduate Nursing degree (or other STEM-type 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 benefits not found in the civilian world. As an Army Nurse and Officer, you will have the respect of your peers and co-workers, as well as opportunities to train and serve in a variety of specialties domestically and abroad.
Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course must agree to complete a period of service with the Army. You can serve full time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners) or choose to serve part time in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career. Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC Scholarship.
