Job Description

Gain the recognition you deserve as a nursing professional — and unprecedented respect. In the Navy Nurse Corps, provide high-quality nursing care for Sailors, Marines and servicemembers — and their families — wherever duty calls. Doing everything a typical nurse would do:

  • Check vitals
  • Treat wounds
  • Manage triage
  • Lift spirits, restore hope and mentor others

Then step outside of your comfort zone. That could mean taking part in humanitarian relief efforts as well as outreach programs in this country and around the world. Collaborating with physicians, surgeons, cardiologists and fellow nurses as colleagues and equals. Developing the leadership skills that will set you apart.

As a Navy Nurse, you’ll elevate your credentials and set the standard as you:

  • Utilize some of the most advanced technology on the planet
  • Work at the best military nursing facilities on shore, at sea and in the field
  • Team with top health-care professionals on the highly respected Navy Health Care team
