Xavier University offers and excellent nursing program.  While going to school to become a nurse you can also earn your commission as an officer in the army and become an army nurse.  You will quickly learn that the responsibility that you will have as an army nurse far exceeds that of your civilian counterparts.

What financial aid is available to me?

Xavier is now able to offer four-year scholarships to incoming freshmen who intend to pursue a nursing degree. All Army ROTC Nursing Scholarships cover tuition, fees, books (currently $1200/year), and a monthly tax-free tiered stipend starting at $300 for freshmen. At Xavier, you can also apply for a Room and Board incentive. In total, that's a package worth over $36,000 per year.  Paid internships are also part of the ROTC Nursing Program.
