Hey im a college freshman who is wants to and going to apply for the navy NCP Program during the very beginning of his sophmore year. My GPA is a 3.56 (gonna do way better next semester) and Im In Student Goverment ( Freshman Senate ) two health science clubs, campus baptist church community (which ive done community service work for ) and my schools entertainment club ( also did volunteer work). I might also join intramurals. I really want to join the navy really bady and would be heartbroken if rejected. My father was in the navy as a corpsman and inspired me and set my heart out. I am of really great character and have morals and some leadership abilities. Im from north carolina so the only nrotc school programs with a nursing program is UNC Chapel hill (too expense) and Duke University ( WAY TOO EXPENSE) so i cant do that . I dont have a criminal record and i meet Pt standards on the navy website ( also im a black male that might be importain or not idk ). Do i have a CHANCE of winning that scholorship ? what do you think is a good backup plan? when do you think is the best to apply? Do I have an Minority advantage for being black and a male in nursing ? Thank you for your response :)

Moved to our Government / Military Nursing forum. Best wishes with application to the Navy Nurse Candidate Program

Ideally you should already be attending a 4 year college with BSN as intended major or community college ASN program with plans to transfer for BSN to be strongest candidate.

In addition to above, physician fitness is stressed. Strong writing and oral skills important -- which you can polish by posting at AN

As the largest nursing website, per our Terms of Service using proper English spelling and punctuation, shows respect for the owner, other bulletin board members, guests, and makes it easier to read your message.

Best wishes on your journey.
