Many nurses find the joy of serving others to be incredibly rewarding. This is especially true in the Navy Nurse Corps. When you work to improve the lives of others, you can vastly improve your own as well – both professionally and personally. As a Navy Nurse, you will serve your country by helping not only those in the military, but also their families and people in need around the globe. Excellent scholarship opportunities mean you have the potential to graduate from nursing school debt-free, and specialty training opportunities can give you a competitive edge in your field.

As a Navy Nurse, you’ll provide high-quality care wherever there’s a need, from Navy medical facilities and ships to humanitarian aid missions overseas. You’ll work closely with other health providers to carry out job responsibilities such as:

• Providing general nursing care for service members and their families.
• Collaborate with Physicians, Surgeons, Cardiologists and other specialists to create and administer treatment plans.
• Apply leading-edge medical advances at world-class hospitals.
• Utilize the most advanced technology on the planet, such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which can lead to less paperwork and more meaningful patient care.
• Assist with global relief efforts such as distributing vaccines or providing emergency care to victims of natural disasters

Desirable locations! Navy Nurses may serve at any one of more than 250 Navy and medical facilities around the globe, from Hawaii to Japan, Germany to Guam, and Washington, D.C., to Washington state. As a Navy Nurse, you may work at one of the highly acclaimed National Naval Medical Centers in Bethesda, MD, Portsmouth, VA, or San Diego, CA. You might even provide medical support aboard one of two dedicated hospital ships—the USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy. 

Nurses who are new to the Navy are required to attend Officer Development School (ODS) in Newport, RI. ODS is a five-week program designed to introduce you to Navy culture.
