ROTC looking to recruit nurses

    50

    By APRIL HOL

    The BYU Reserve Officers Training Corps will sponsor a seminar today to explain a scholarship available to nursing and pre-nursing students interested in joining the Army ROTC.

    The guest speakers at the seminar will be Capt. Janice E. Mano and Lt. Col. Linda Eppely. Mano will discuss how nursing corresponds with the ROTC program and the U.S. Army. Eppely will discuss the advantages of military vs. civilian nursing and describe what nursing is like in the reserves.

    “Capt. Mano is one of the leading nurses in the military today,” said Capt. Michael Current, with the BYU army ROTC.

    Eppely is now on active duty as an Army National Guard nurse and has also served in the Army Reserves.

    To be eligible for the scholarships, nursing and pre-nursing students must have two years left to complete in their undergraduate degree and be willing to participate in the ROTC program.

    “Upon graduating from BYU’s nursing program, the student would be commissioned as a second lieutenant and go on active or reserve duty as an army nurse,” Current said.

    The scholarship seminar will be in 250 ROTC at 6 p.m. An informal discussion will take place immediately following and refreshments will be served. For more information call 378-3601 and refer other specific questions to Capt. Current.
