College’s Lincoln Division Designated U.S. Army ROTC Nursing Center of Excellence

The Army ROTC program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (www.unl.edu/armyrotc/army-rotc) has designated the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Lincoln Division as a U.S. Army Nursing Center of Excellence, one of only 47 programs to be recognized.

Brandon Lake, enrollment and scholarship officer at UNL Army ROTC, said the college was selected for the quality of its curriculum, students, faculty and staff at the college and its relationship with UNL Army ROTC.

Students who participate in UNL Army ROTC while earning a nursing degree at UNMC are given priority for ROTC nursing incentives to include scholarships, mentorship, and career guidance. Beginning in August and for each academic year, the UNMC College of Nursing Lincoln Division will offer Army ROTC cadets three guaranteed seats into the bachelor’s degree in nursing program. Currently there are two guaranteed seats.
