  1. 1
    Just wondering if anyone has information regarding the 2012 fully qualified nursing boards. Wondering when the board meets, how many slots are available and when results will be out. Thanks so much!

    I just went on Airforce.com iChat tonight and asked this same question (when is the next FQ nursing board date) They sent me an email back stating this:

    Board #: 13NC01

    Cutoff to AFRS: 27 Sept 2012

    Suspense cutoff: 19 Oct 2012

    Board start date: 6 Nov 2012

    Estimated release date: 19 Nov 2012

    I'm sure these dates are tentative, but it's a good estimate. So if you plan on putting in an application, it looks like now is a good time to find a health recruiter! Good luck if you plan on applying this year!

    The dates you listed are actually correct, I just put in my application for the fully qualified board. I had applied for the 2012 july NTP board, and I was on the alternate list for Med-surg.

    That's awesome PrinceRNAF! Good luck on your boards and I hope you get a slot! Did you apply for a FQ Med-Surg slot or a specialty? Did your recruiter tell you how many might be selected for this board?

    hey princeRNAF,

    I applied for the med/surg selection boards for this november too. good luck to you. my recruiter told me that there are about 80 slots. but who knows, different recruiters seem to say different things, you know what I mean. one thing new I learned about applying the second time around is that there were different slots for the cot date that I could select. I just thought you had to go to what ever one they told you too but my recruiter said that you can request a certain time of the year based off of what cot dates are on there paper and pick one. now, your not guaranteed to get that slot but you can still request it. have you heard of that before? he said they do that so people can get things in order before leaving which i guess makes sense.

    hey SThomas30,

    I actually picked the may COT date, that way if I get picked then I wont have to move our oldest daughter out of school in the middle of the year but my luck never runs that good. LOL. I had some money saved and if I get picked then I was gonna use that to buy uniforms but recently my husbands truck broke down and we had to fork out alot of that money for that so If I get picked and they have me go to the January COT date, then I'm not sure what I am gonna do with trying to re-coup that money in a short amount of time, but I will figure it out somehow I guess. LOL. when it rains it pours!!!!! thats cool that your already in the service. that should make COT seem like a breeze for you huh? talk to you soon.

    SThomas30,

    ok, I got a call from my recruiter yesterday and he told me that there were sooooo many applications turned into this november's board that a whole lot got turned away and sent back to the recruiters office to be turned into the next board which is kinda rare according to him and mine ended up being one of them unfortunately. have you ever heard of this? another sucky thing is that now I have to do my CN interiew again because that expires in december.
