    im sure you have contacted a medical army reserve recruiter. there is a poster by the name "olderthandirt2" i believe is in the army crna program or has just finished it, dont know if he is reserve or reg. army. private mail him for some info. good luck.
    I'm currently Active duty rn in the Army CRNA program (USAGPAN) and female
    If anyone has any questions about the program, let me know.

    As far as reserve....I was reserve as a 66H8A (icu rn) then went active. From what I understand the Army Reserve component is 100% for their CRNA slots (meaning....they don't need anymore for this fiscal yr).
    Where as the Active duty CRNA fill rate is ~ 50%
    ....big need for more CRNAs.

    good luck,

    I've heard of a government program that is somewhat related to the military but the main focus is to have you work in America at places medically underserved for a few years and they pay back most if not all of your student loans. Has anyone else heard of this? I believe it's called HRSA.

    Hey double d

    I know this thread was 7 years ago but wondering if you're still in reserves ? I'm thinking of joining for CRNA . Is it worth it? Were you deployed often? If so- for how long at a time?
