I'm currently in my second year of college looking into becoming a Navy nurse - my dad retired as a commanding officer and I love the navy lifestyle. What I'm not clear on is the difference between the Nursing Candidate program and NROTC. I have a clear picture of ROTC, but not sure on NCP. I am looking at Old Dominion University because it has an ROTC program but have always wanted to do Sentara Nursing Program, which is a small nursing school that doesn't have any affiliation with ROTC. If I chose the NCP, would I be able to attend Sentara but still be guaranteed a spot in the navy after I recieve my BSN?
