Physical Fitness-Steel City Naval ROTC - Carnegie Mellon University

Physical Fitness

At CMU NROTC, we hold our Nurse Option Midshipmen to the same high physical fitness expectations of Naval and Marine Corps officers. In doing so, we ensure that all of our Nurse Option midshipmen are not only mentally, but also physically prepared for the tasks that lie ahead of them. In order to assess the physical condition of our students, we conduct a physical fitness test each semester. For Nurse Option Midshipmen, this test consists of a 1.5-mile run, two-minutes of sit-ups, and two-minutes of push-ups.
