MEDICAL ENLISTED COMMISSIONING  PROGRAM  (MECP) The MECP gives active duty enlisted personnel, including those in the TAR Program, an opportunity to complete the requirements for a baccalaureate degree in nursing and earn a commission as a Nurse Corps officer.

MECP  selectees  receive  full  pay  and  allowances  for their  enlisted  paygrades  and  are  eligible  for advancement while attending college on a full-time basis, including summer sessions. Tuition, fees, books, and  other  expenses  must  be  paid  by  the  MECP candidate. Upon  graduation,  candidates  are  appointed  as Ensign, Nurse Corps, United States Naval Reserve. Candidates incur an active duty obligation of 4 years, with  a  total  commissioned  obligation  of  8  years.  Time not spent on active duty is spent in the Inactive Reserve. Candidates  are  commissioned  upon  completion  for MECP   and   must   successfully   complete   Officer Candidate  Indoctrination  School.  Nurse  Corps  officers must obtain and maintain a license to practice as a registered professional nurse from a state, territory, or the District of Columbia, This license is based on a licensing   examination   provided   by   the   National Council  of  State  Boards  of  Nursing  and  administered by one of its member boards of nursing. Obtaining  and  maintaining  a  license  is  the responsibility  of  the  officer.  Officers  who  fail  to become  licensed  may  be  appointed  in  a  different competitive category to complete any incurred active duty  obligation  or  separated  for  cause  under  the guidance of SECNAVINST 1120.6 and SECNAVINST 1920.6. Applications  are  due  annually  by  1  January. Eligibility  criteria  and  application  procedures  for  the MECP  are  contained  in  the   Medical  Enlisted Commissioning  Program  (MECP),   BUPERSINST 1131.3.
