The Program

Program Description

As a highly trained US Military Medic, the skills and experience you built while serving overseas have a valuable and important place in civilian society. However, making the transition from active deployment to a civilian registered nursing (RN) role has been challenging for many Veterans.

Azure College is here to change that.

It’s an unfortunate reality that the US military health care training you received during your enlistment often does not comply with civilian standards of academic training that are required to fill a non-military nursing position.

As a result, Veterans have traditionally struggled to receive academic credit for their military health care training, and can find themselves back to square one when returning to civilian life.


The good news is that, at Azure College, we’ll help you bridge the gap quickly, efficiently and with the respect you deserve.

Our Military Medic to RN Fast Track program will equip you with all the necessary knowledge and tools to transition into a registered nursing position in a fast-paced civilian setting and put you on the fast track to achieving a fulfilling career as an RN with a range of promotion opportunities.

Our intensive program draws from course material taught in the first year of the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), and will help you learn how to apply your high-level combat expertise in a civilian health care context.

And you won’t be confined to endless lecture halls. Rather, Azure’s Military Medic to RN Fast Track program is built around an engaging mixture of classroom instruction, simulation labs and supervised real-world clinical experiences in busy hospitals and healthcare facilities.


You certainly can continue your studies at Azure College after graduating from our Military Medic to RN Fast Track program.

In a matter of weeks, you’ll be ready to enroll in Azure College’s Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing, Accredited by ABHES.

You’ll take courses in anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, psychology, behavioral sciences and nursing to build a comprehensive knowledge of your profession.

You’ll also receive real-world supervised experiences in a range of specialized hospital departments including pediatrics, psychiatry, maternity and surgery.


You have a bright future as a registered nurse.

According to the US Department of Labor, registered nurses held about 2.7 million jobs in 2010, making RNs the largest employment sector in healthcare.

But it doesn’t stop there. Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 26 per cent between 2010 and 2020 – faster than any other occupation. While there’s no lack of employment prospects for RNs, at Azure College, we are dedicated to connecting you with the best job opportunities that will help you build a remarkable career.

That’s why we have one the most active job placement departments in the industry. We’ll use our extensive healthcare network and work with you to find the opportunities that are worthy of your valuable military experience and new civilian qualifications.

But our commitment to your career beyond your studies is just one benefit that sets Azure College apart from the rest. These are just some of the reasons why studying at Azure College is the best decision you can make:
