Eastern Washington's ROTC program places Nurses into the Army each year. As a general rule, EWU Army ROTC Nurse Cadets complete their first two to three years of Nursing and ROTC pre-requisites on Eastern's Cheney campus. Nursing Cadets complete their final two years at the Washington State University (WSU) College of Nursing in downtown Spokane. The WSU College of Nursing reserves seats in each class for ROTC Nurses that achieve their admissions standards.
The WSU College of Nursing is located at a facility at Riverpoint in Spokane. The facility boasts interactive audio-visual classrooms and multi-media, research, clinical, and simulation laboratories. The simulation lab, in particular, is a state-of-the-art facility that provides students with a realistic, hands on learning experience that reinforces classroom and practical instruction with real-world scenarios. The College is recognized as a national leader in the use of technology and is known for the excellence of its video productions. The College of Nursing has an impressive history of visionary leadership, institutional collaboration, and community involvement that has made it a recognized leader in the education and training of the next generation of healthcare providers.
Nurses in ROTC complete the same training requirements as other Cadets. However, our program has several options to manage Nurse Cadets through the rigors and demands of a touch academic field while completing ROTC requirements.
