Nurse Option-Steel City Naval ROTC - Carnegie Mellon University

Nurse Option

Currently, Nursing majors are offered at the University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University. Nurses who apply for and receive the Naval ROTC Nurse Scholarship will be required to take four NROTC courses throughout their NROTC career. Held to the same standards as Navy option Midshipmen, our nurses are required to attend the weekly professional military training session, as well as the physical training sessions led by the Battalion. Despite a demanding curriculum, Nurse Options are required to maintain a high level of activity within the life of the Battalion. Additionally, Nurse Option Midshipmen frequently meet together to learn more about the Navy Nurse Corps and the futures that lie ahead of them. Upon graduation and commissioning, Nurse Option Midshipmen will join the Navy Nurse Corps at Naval hospitals around the world, either ashore or afloat.
