“The Nurse Summer Training Program allowed me to experience things I could not get in the civilian sector. I was able to work over 148 hours of clinical in the Intensive Care Unit with an outstanding preceptor, who prepared me for my ICU rotation back on campus. During this experience I got the opportunity to care for critical patients as well as create and present an in-service on chest tubes. This has been my overall best experience with the ROTC program.

Leadership and Excellence

These Benefits Last a Lifetime
Army ROTC is one of the Nation's top leadership programs, with a wide range of benefits. Through Army ROTC you can:

  • Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC Scholarship 
  • Gain experience you can't find anywhere else 
  • Gain the respect of your peers and future employers 
  • Train to become a leader and manager

In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader—not just a person who gives orders but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation.  As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing.  You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.

Skills Development 
The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students.  Army ROTC has two phases:  Basic Course and Advanced Course.

Whether you're a college-bound high school student or already attending a college or university, Army ROTC has scholarships available.  Scholarships are awarded based on a student's merit and grades, not financial need.
