“ 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. Hooha Nurse Corps! ”

LEADERSHIP

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.
