The Nurse Corps
The Nurse Corps actively supports the Navy and Marine Corps Team and Navy Medicine with a community of active and reserve component professionals focused on accomplishing the readiness and health benefit missions. Nurse Corps officers share a historical camaraderie of caring for others under ordinary, extraordinary, and often unusual circumstances. As professional registered nurses, they voluntarily assume an additional role as naval officers which mandates the successful integration of compassion with discipline, individuality with conformity, and wellness promotion with wartime readiness. Navy nurses are life-long learners, dedicated to pursuing quality education and training to foster personal and professional excellence. Leadership is every Nurse Corps officer's responsibility. As role models and mentors Navy nurses must apply their experience, education, and training to be both military and nursing leaders.
