The Army Nurse Candidate Program was established by the U.S. Army Health Care Team for undergraduate students pursuing a BSN from an accredited institution. You’ll get a $5,000 bonus when you begin the program and an additional $5,000 at graduation. There is also a monthly stipend of $1,000 during those months you are enrolled in a full-time nursing program accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education or National League for Nursing.
Financing education is no small matter! Tuition, books, and supplies all add up to a hefty financial liability that can take years to overcome. The Nurse Candidate Program provides a monthly stipend for full time students in accredited Bachelor of Science Nursing programs. Students can enroll after their sophomore year and receive an initial grant of $10,000 (paid in two installments of $5000 each), plus $1000 a month for up to 24 months.Erick’s decision to enter the military was not directly related to nursing; he had considered it prior to college. However, he still felt a greater desire to serve and felt compelled to look into it further. It allowed him to grow professionally and personally, and he sees the two as perfect complements to each other for the opportunity to serve both at the community level, and now globally in his military service. It also ties all his personal values together. Although the Navy’s Nurse Candidate Program has an arduous selection process, Erick said it was well worth it, and provided great financial support for his nursing education. Students can enroll after their sophomore year in an accredited Bachelor of Science Nursing program, and receive an initial grant of $10,000, plus a monthly stipend for up to 24 months. After graduation, participants join the Navy Nurse Corps as an Officer. Erick’s five-year commitment will begin in February as he enters officer training in Rhode Island, and then will be stationed at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego for a minimum of three years. Being deployed is always a possibility during his Navy nursing career, but Erick welcomes this, too, as an exciting opportunity.
