As a nurse officer in the Commissioned Corps, you'll go places in your profession, in the community, and in the world. Valued for your initiative, resourcefulness, and professional judgment, you'll gain clinical and leadership experience while treating diverse and challenging cases. You can live and work in remote communities, providing care to those who need our help the most. You can serve the Nation during public health emergencies, conduct research, review new drugs, and train other nurses. And you'll be part of a team of committed health care professionals, enjoying excellent benefits and work/life balance while making a real difference.

“Our country appreciates and needs its Commissioned Corps nurses. You may see this gratitude in the eyes of a child you helped, a hurricane victim that you cared for, or the community of people that you immunized.”

Assistant Surgeon General and Chief Nurse Officer,
U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
