    Yes and most have the opportunity to do so. You can specialize as a nurse when you hit 1LT ( emergency, critical care etc) and go on to get a graduate degree as a CRNA, NP or CNS. They also pay for the doctorate in nursing program.

    So after completing ROTC I would have to be promoted to 1LT and then the Army will offer to send me back to school? I am interested in being a ER nurse or CRNA.

    re-read the post.

    You do not enter as an O2. You will do 2 yrs as an O1, and than when you hit 1LT , you can specialize as a nurse.

    Maybe my post was unclear but I said "So I would have to be promoted to 1LT", so I understood what he said.

    My bad, I mis-read your post.

    In essence, if I am correct, what you want to know is can you go as soon as you are an O1?

    We all make mistakes :biggrin:

    Yes you are correct, and also what percentage of army nurses get this offer? Would I have to retake some ROTC classes in graduate school? and any details on how it works if you know them. Thanks!
