ROTC Nursing
  • On June 3, 1996 the United States Army Cadet Command and Capital University agreed to become Partners in Nursing Education. In order to meet its needs for future Army Nurse Corps officers, the US Army extended this opportunity to a few select universities and colleges. Capital University School of Nursing was one of only 41 university programs nationwide selected for this special honor and recognition. The criteria included: a highly challenging academic curriculum, a high retention and graduation rate of nurse cadets within the Army ROTC program, and a high success rate of students passing state nursing board exams.

    There are two aspects to the Partners in Nursing Education Program. First, the US Army Cadet Command provides a limited number of 4-year Army Nurse scholarships to Capital University each year, and the School of Nursing agrees to accept these students into the nursing program for 4 years. All students admitted through this program must meet the academic standards for admission of Capital University and the School of Nursing.

    Second, Capital University awards nursing students a minor in Military Science which includes academic credit for the Nurse Summer Training Program completed by cadets during the summer following their junior year.
