I was doing some research about critical care nursing in the military. 

I came across DFAS Health Accession Bonus FY2020

Critical Care nursing has a $100,000 bonus for a 4 year obligation.

Can someone confirm this and is the bonus given up front or split up over the 4 years?

Accession bonuses are paid out in a lump shortly after you report to your first base.  You get it all at once minus the estimated tax liability.  I don't know the exact amount of the current bonuses is, but you will probably get about $60K all at once depending on your state of residence.
