  • About Army Nurses

    NurseSpecial 2, 3, and 4-year scholarships are designated for nursing students. For Viterbo nursing students, an Army ROTC scholarship can be worth as much as $80,000.00!

    Army Nursing is an integral part of the cadet battalion population. In March 1996, Viterbo University was selected by U.S. Army Cadet Command as one of only 41 schools nationwide to participate in the Partnership in Nursing Education (PNE) Program. Under provisions of this program four-year Army Nurse Scholarship winners must attend one of the 41 designated schools.

    If nursing is your professional goal, there is no better place to begin your nursing career than in the Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC). Only Army ROTC offers you the unique opportunity to gain practical experience while you receive financial assistance for college.

    You have chosen a most demanding profession. It will require a cool head and clear thinking in the face of a medical emergency. ROTC enhances your undergraduate nursing education by providing the unique leadership and management training along with the practical experience needed for success, either in the Army or in a civilian career.

    There are advantages in Army ROTC that are not found in traditional nursing programs. As an ROTC nursing student, you will be able to combine college courses in military science with an invaluable summer nurse experience. You will develop your professional skills while you learn some meaningful things about yourself and what you can accomplish. You will also develop leadership skills, self-confidence, flexibility, and adaptability while having fun.
