Our first cadet spot light for the year with Kelly Godsey one of our cadets in the nursing program
What's it like being in the nursing program and in ROTC?
“It’s definitely difficult being in both the nursing program and ROTC. It is a tremendous amount of work, and it requires a lot of organization and hard effort. But, it also is very rewarding, being able to always remember that all of this work will result in being able to serve in the Army as a nurse.”
What's your favorite part about joining ROTC?
“My favorite part of ROTC is the community. I have the largest support system I have ever had, and the other cadets, as well as cadre, really help push me when I need it. It’s a family I love to see every day!”
What are your plans after commissioning?
“After commissioning, I hope to branch into the Army Nurse Corps. I want to be stationed wherever the Army needs the most help, but I would also love to go to JBLM or Fort Carson. My plan is to stay in the Army and go through a doctorate program in the nursing field, so I hope to stay active for a long time, and be stationed in many different places.”
What was the most surprising thing you learned after joining ROTC?
“The most surprising thing I learned in ROTC so far is how important perseverance is. Often, I can feel very overwhelmed with the amount of work nursing and ROTC requires, but perseverance is what helps me move forward. Sometimes things suck, sometimes things hurt, but if I can remind myself to put one foot in front of the other, just like the cadets around me, I feel one step closer to success.”
