Becomes Sam Tarly Maester
Why is Samwell Tarly allowed to be a maester after joining the Night's Watch?
Like everywhere else in Westeros, the Night Watch needs a maester. The position is important for a number of reasons: you are a scholar (so you know history) and you are a healer (so you know medicine). These are things the Night Watch must have.
The night watch had a maester before Sam: Maester Aemon was the Maester of the Night's Watch until his death. So it seems natural that a member of the Night Watch can become a maester.
Sam didn't leave the night watch any more than the rangers "desert" when they are traveling in the north, or the brother's "desert" when they are making recruiting trips in the south. Sam goes to Oldtown to become a maester and return to the night watch .
Since the maesters are (theoretically) politically neutral, Sam's vows to the citadel shouldn't conflict with his vows to the guard when he returns. In fact, both the Maester Order and the Night Watch essentially swear the same Vow: You sever all family ties, cannot inherit land, marry or father children, and vow to serve "the kingdom" regardless of who is in power. So your vows go very well together, probably more so than anywhere else in Westeros.
