US NAVY NURSING CAREER


 


ABOUT


By the very nature of their duties, Navy Nurses quickly rise to the top of their profession. They provide care, not only for military service members and their families, but also for people in need around the globe.


Working with a team of talented colleagues united by a common mission, Navy Nurses have the opportunity to educate, lead and shape policy within Navy Health Care. They also:




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




  • Utilize some of the most advanced technology on the planet, such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), 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




RESPONSIBILITIES


As an active duty Navy Nurse, you’ll provide high-quality nursing care, doing everything a typical nurse would do in a variety of settings:




  • Military treatment facilities (in the U.S. and overseas)




  • Austere environments (i.e. deployments, humanitarian aid missions)




  • Onboard ships (aircraft carriers, hospital ships)




Nursing in an austere environment could mean taking part in humanitarian relief efforts, such as administering infant vaccinations in developing countries, or providing emergency care to victims of a natural disaster. Navy Nurses collaborate with physicians, surgeons, cardiologists and fellow nurses as colleagues 


EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES


Nursing Students


With the Nurse Candidate Program (NCP), you can get an initial grant of $10,000, plus a stipend of $1,000 per month for up to 24 months. That’s up to $34,000 to help pay your way through nursing school.


Offers have many variables. To get details and find out which offer would benefit you most, request that a Navy Recruiter contact you.

To qualify for employment consideration in the Navy Nurse Corps, you must:




  • Be a U.S. citizen currently practicing in the U.S.




  • Be a student or graduate in good standing of a U.S. education program granting a bachelor of science degree and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)




  • Be licensed to practice in a U.S. state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or a U.S. territory (new graduates from NROTC or NCP must obtain a license within one year of beginning Active Duty service)




  • Be willing to serve a minimum of three years of Active Duty




  • Be between the ages of 18 and 41




  • Be in good physical condition and pass a full medical examination




General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you intend to serve Active Duty or Reserve Duty, and whether you are currently serving, have served before or have never served before.
