The Army offers six specialty areas of study to nurse officers:

- Psych/Mental Health**
These courses are 16 weeks in length and are conducted in a combination of classroom and clinical settings. Army Nurses must have a minimum of one year clinical experience prior to attending one of these schools.
All scholarship nurse cadets will automatically be eligible to apply for specialty training within the first 6-12 months on active duty and guaranteed a seat in one of the four specialty courses.
