As an Officer in the Navy Nurse Corps, you’ll develop strong peer-to-peer relationships with Navy Physicians – along with the respect and honor that accompany the Navy uniform.

  • Work with a team of talented colleagues united by a common mission

  • Seize opportunities to educate, lead and shape policy within Navy Health Care

  • Instruct Hospital Corpsmen on how to provide quality patient care

  • Choose from sought-after specialties – study to become a nurse practitioner or a nurse anesthetist or even attend the famed Naval School of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md.

As a Navy Nurse, you’ll elevate your credentials and set the standard as you:

  • Apply leading-edge medical advances at world-class hospitals

  • Utilize some of the most advanced technology on the planet like Radio Frequency Identification, which can lead to less paperwork and more meaningful patient care

  • Work at the best military nursing facilities on shore, at sea and in the field

  • Find new meaning in the term “teamwork” with top health-care professionals on the highly respected Navy Health Care team

Healer of mind, body and spirit. Ambassador of hope. Respected nursing professional. There’s no exaggerating the significance of the role you’ll serve as a nurse in America’s Navy.

Specific Responsibilities:

In the Navy Nurse Corps, you’ll provide high-quality nursing care for Sailors, Marines and servicemembers – and their families – wherever duty calls. Doing everything a typical nurse would do:

  • Check vitals

  • Treat wounds

  • Manage triage

  • Lift spirits, restore hope and mentor others

Then step outside of your comfort zone. That could mean taking part in humanitarian relief efforts, like administering infant vaccinations to the children of Cienaga, Colombia, or providing emergency care to victims of a deadly earthquake in Haiti. Outreach programs at home and abroad. Collaborating with physicians, surgeons, cardiologists and fellow nurses as colleagues and equals. Developing the leadership skills that will set you apart.
