The United States Public Health Service, one of our Nation’s eight uniformed services, has reached out with an opportunity for nursing students to participate in a paid externship called the Senior Commissioned Officer Student Training Externship Program (SRCOSTEP) while they are attending school. This program offers students financial assistance (military-like salary and benefits) during their last year of academic study. SRCOSTEP guarantees participants a full-time federal position in the student’s health profession upon graduation with the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) as a U.S. Public Health Service officer.
With the current COVID-19 pandemic and previous public health emergencies, the U.S. Public Health Service, a team of over 6,500 public health officers led by the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health and U.S. Surgeon General, stand fast on the front lines with the mission of protecting, promoting, and advancing the health and safety of our Nation.
Additional information on the U.S. Public Health Service and the Federal Bureau of Prisons can be found at the following links:
