Pittsburg State Army ROTC has been deemed a Cadet Command Nursing Center of Excellence; we are the only school in Kansas to be named as such!  Pittsburg State was given this honor due to the achievements of nurses that we have commissioned and the outstanding faculty and staff in the School of Nursing.  The Nursing Center of Excellence designation gives priority of nursing scholarships from U.S. Army Cadet Command in our region to Pittsburg State ROTC, and annually guarantees two seats into the upper-division program within the Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing. If you want to compete for a 3 or 4 year nurse scholarship, Pittsburg State is the place to do it!
