    Hello All-
    I am finishing up classes in December and graduating in January (school process). I just received my tentative placement (San Diego) from LCDR Gomez and just wanted to know if anyones changed when they actually received their orders.

    Any new grads out there who are already working? How is the adjustment so far?

    How was ODS?

    Any insight would be helpful. As I am getting closer to finishing up school there are so many questions flooding my mind.

    I'm in the exact same boat. Graduate December, NCLEX January (or as soon as I can), ODS February or March (LCDR Gomez says most likely March), and San Diego "tentatively" after that. I was also curious about the word tentative. San Diego was my top choice, and I would hate to get the rug pulled out from under me now that I have it in my mind where I am going. Obviously I will be happy to go wherever they send me and not controlling my destination is the nature of the beast. I am curious also, though, if anybody previous NCPer's "tentative" orders changed.

    On a more personal note, my name is Will, and I live in Louisiana. Looking forward to getting in the Navy and starting my post-college life. It'd be nice to actually have talked to someone before we all go to ODS.

    Hi,

    For those who graduated last spring, how has the first 6-8 months been? I would love to hear about how it has been at some of the smaller hospitals. Did they have some form of new grad program or did you work with a preceptor?

    Thanks!

    HM2Doc - I got the email to contact our detailer today and actually spoke to him today as well. Tentatively set to go to SD which I am very happy with! How about you?

    Oaktown2: I was doing a 12 hr rotation in the ER Mar 1st, so I'll have to give him a call Monday morning. My wife is active duty and stationed in SD, so there's a 99.9% I'll be going to San Diego as well. Balboa was my 1st pick on my DPS.

    @WILL higg
    - Have you made it to ODS yet? I go April 7 and im getting nervous. I was literally told yesterday because LCDR Gomez was on leave for the week. I am still going to San Diego which is what I wanted.

    I am from Virginia definitely ready to start post college life.

    Let me know how ODS is!
