Question about money recieved from Navy Nurse Candidate program?

  1. Basically I did my pre req at a community college and will apply for a nursing school across town here in the US. If I get accepted into the NNCP I want to go a year at this univeristy but I want to do my last year of nursing school at the Univeristy College London. I've always wanted to do this. I know I can use pell grant at certian international schools but can I use NNCP money to go to an international nursing school?

    So the stipend from the Navy can be used for whatever you want. There are no limitations on how the money is spent. However, in order to be accepted into the NCP, you have to be accepted to a CCNE accredited program. They also ask for you academic plan, signed by the school and you provide transcripts each semester. So unless UCL is CCNE accredited (very few foreign programs are) then I don't believe it is an option. You may also want to keep in mind that in order to join any of the branches, you must have a BSN from a CCNE accredited program. So finishing your BSN at UCL might prevent you from joining the military as a nurse. I would look at options for summer study. Good luck!
