Have you ever considered becoming a physician assistant or nurse practitioner AND serving your country at the same time? In the Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), you can receive 100% tuition assistance while completing an eligible physician assistant education program, plus a monthly stipend in excess of $2,200 to help cover living expenses for up to 24 months.
Members of the Navy Nurse Corps may serve at the more than 250 Navy and medical facilities around the world. The Navy is particularly interested in recruiting family, pediatric, psychiatric and women’s health nurse practitioners. Navy Nurses quickly rise to the top of their profession. They provide care, not only for military service members and their families, but also for people in need around the globe.
A word of warning: The military imposes a structured lifestyle that does not suit everyone. But, if you have a desire to serve country and patients and get a lot of financial assistance, the U.S. Navy may be for you.
