The AMEDD Enlisted Commissioning Program allows enlisted soldiers to earn a degree in Nursing and earn a commission in the Army Nurse Corps.
The program has about 200 enlisted soldiers currently enrolled in colleges and universities around the country who are completing their Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing while receiving full Pay and Benefits. The program is still growing, and constantly changing to meet the needs of the Army and Army Nurse Corps.
Interested soldiers must be able to enter a BSN program at an accredited college or university and complete their nursing degree within 24 calendar months. The program funds tuition up to $9,000 per year. AECP offers many benefits to the soldier while enrolled in the program. Soldiers continue to receive full pay and entitlements plus a $1,000 per year stipend to pay for books and school necessities. The tuition is funded by the Army and is paid directly to the school.
Upon graduation from the BSN program, the soldier will attend the AMEDD Officer’s Basic Course where you will receive your commission as a second lieutenant in the Army Nurse Corps.
