Air Force ROTC and Nursing

The nationwide shortage of nurses also exists in the Air Force!

And exciting job opportunities await: nurse administrator, flight nurse, nurse-midwife, nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse, or operating room nurse.

A nursing scholarship program is operated on a noncompetitive basis. Those who meet the qualifications are awarded the scholarship and are not reviewed by a scholarship selection board. In many cases, these scholarships may be activated the same semester as the nomination. For more information go to
