SERVING IN THE ARMY RESERVE
Army Medical Corps

As a health care professional with the U.S. Army Reserve, you’ll be exposed to new techniques, procedures and points of view. You’ll also gain knowledge and skills that you’ll be proud to take home to your own practice.

ARMY ROTC NURSE PROGRAM

Army ROTC nurse cadets may qualify for scholarships and other additional benefits to help start gaining the valuable career and leadership skills of an officer in the Army Nurse Corps.

Army Medicine

As a member of the U.S. Army health care team you will do what you do best — use your professional skills and best judgment to provide a full spectrum of patient care. You’ll provide this expert care in facilities that are second to none, using equipment and procedures that are often more advanced than their private-sector counterparts.

Along with offering competitive pay and comprehensive benefits, the U.S. Army health care team supports and encourages your continued learning. If you’re ready to specialize or pursue an advanced degree, we have a number of programs than can help. You may qualify to receive tuition, pay and allowances that will let you focus your attention on learning. And if you have nursing school loans to repay, the Active Duty Health Professions Loan Repayment Program may help you repay up to $120,000 of those loans.

The U.S. Army health care team offers one more important benefit. You may choose active duty or serve in the U.S. Army Reserve.  As a nurse and an officer on the U.S. Army Reserve health care team, you can continue to work in your own community and serve when needed. In addition to providing you with some great benefits, your experience here will enhance your career and enrich your life.

When we say you can expect more from a U.S. Army Nursing career, we mean it. To find out more,

Dr. Becky Hooper, Supervisory Program Manager, leads a tour group through the Center for the Intrepid.

This is a facility for those who have been intrepid in the defense of our country. If you look up that word in the dictionary, it means fearless and courageous.

My name is Becky Hooper. I'm a retired Army Physical Therapist. My connection with the Center for the Intrepid is that this is a rehab facility. It was built by over 600,000 Americans who donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Out patients are here sometimes up to seven hours a day. They might do OT in the morning, PT in the afternoon. That's an advantage that we have in our system. We aren't constrained by the requirements, the Medicare kind of thing.

This is our motion analysis lab. We have 26 infrared cameras spread out through the hall and three different areas where we can track patient movements. The main pathway is for running and walking – and if I was standing on this and it was turned on, it would know how much I weigh.

This is a system called the CAREN, which stands for computer-assisted rehab environment. We have an immersive type of environment, where a patient can experience a snowboarding scene at the top of a mountain and then have to adjust as the platform pitches forward. This is one of a kind. You will not see this domed system anywhere else in the world.

(Shows car.) The most important thing is all of the technology we can add to the vehicle, whether it is hand controls on the column or console, or special adaptations for driving. The simulation adds to the realism of getting back behind the wheel.

You see pictures behind you of what patients can do on the FlowRider. They work on balance, agility, coordination, core strength, upper body strength, endurance. And probably, most importantly, confidence.

Patients and families come in here for the first time and they realize, "Hey, good things are coming." I think you'll agree with me that they set us up for success.
