ROTC Nursing at Carroll


Cadets balance Nursing and ROTC studies with a smile

If nursing is your professional goal, there is perhaps no better place to begin your nursing career than in ROTC. You have chosen a most demanding profession. It will require a cool head and clear thinking in the face of a medical emergency.

As a nursing student, you will be able to combine college courses in military science with an invaluable nurse summer training experience. You will develop your professional skills while you learn meaningful things about yourself and what you can accomplish.

Carroll College Nursing will provide you with the professional training and skills you need to be an outstanding nurse while ROTC will provide you with opportunities to be an outstanding leader!

A Nursing Experience Unlike Any Other

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.

Nurse Summer Training Program (NSTP)

Nursing students who are also Army ROTC Cadets have an opportunity for a unique summer nursing experience. The paid, three-week Nurse Summer Training Program assigns Cadets to Army hospitals throughout the U.S. and Germany.

The program introduces you to the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to the roles and responsibilities of an Army Nurse Corps Officer. Under the supervision of an experienced Army Nurse Corps Officer, you will obtain hands-on experience. Your one-on-one clinical experience will allow you to hone your clinical skills, develop your problem-solving techniques and become comfortable with developing your professional skills as a member of the U.S. Army Healthcare Team.
