    Nursing Option Midshipmen Article from Georgetown

    Very good program. Our DD attended Georgetown University School of Nursing on an NROTC scholarship (graduated and commissioned May 2021). The nursing program is top notch and Georgetown University is a crosstown affiliate of the Capital Battalion which our DD felt was a great experience.

    Transferring a NROTC Scholarship

    I believe that in most years, NROTC nursing graduates are sent to one of the 3 hospitals mentioned. That was not the case in 2021. Out of approximately 9 nursing graduates, 4 were sent to Navy Hospital Okinawa. My DD was one of them. :)

    Favorite NROTC Schools?

    My DD is in her final year at one of the cross town schools and she speaks very highly of the experience. What is not to like about doing your PT at the base of the Lincoln Memorial steps and running on the National Mall? The proximity to everything that Washington DC has to offer is a big plus.

    Navy ROTC Application Deadline & Timing

    Certainly not too late to apply. Three years ago my DD didn't start her application until January but was able to meet the deadline and was awarded a scholarship April 25th. Go for it.

    No Thanksgiving break

    Same here with the shoulder length hair but 2 years ahead of you. Between boot camp and hospital corps school I spent the entire winter 75-76 at Great Lakes. No liberty during boot camp and I believe only 1 or 2 phone calls.

    Yikes! I guess that means the mid-late 70's are now considered the days of really old.

    Blood Type Rant/Question?

    There are other TB tests that involve taking blood (interferon gamma release assays). The advantage of this test is that you don't need to return to your providers office in 48-72 hours to have the skin test checked for reaction.

    I have been running in Hoka Speedgoats for the past couple of years (25-35 miles per week). Whether on trails or hard surfaces, they are by far the best shoes I have ever run in.
