    Anyone else get accepted recently?

    I completed my packet and it will be going to the boards soon. How long did you guys wait to receive news? I'm trying to get into critical care, my recruiter said slots are still open. However I've only been a critical care nurse for about 7 months and currently working on trying to get my hours to take the CCRN. I was a Med Surg nurse for about 2.5 years prior to moving to the ICU. Any advice would help. I'm hoping I get it.

    Can I ask if you had any certs (CEN)? Also, what was your prior enlistment, HM? How long have you been in the ED? Thanks, trying to find out what the board is looking for.

    Have you already been credentialed for Critical Care?

    For anyone that applied to Med-Surg I received word from my recruiter that my packet had been submitted to the board several days ago and they were requesting more information. I was told originally that the board would meet last October.

    Hello All. I applied back in Feb and just found out that I was an alternate. I have to wait at this point. I am trying to go in as med surg. Anyone else hear anything new on their package?

    As per my recruiter my packet should be submitted to the boards when they meet on May 15th of this month; Im credentialed for Crititcal Care, and the last time I spoke with her (April 20th) there are still slots for CCU/ICU. She says I'll hear by June if I get it or not.

    What does an alternate consist of, and does that mean you'll get picked up when they have slots open?

    Sorry for the late reply, yes I've been credentialed for Critical Care.

    If those that are selected decide not to accept their commission, then the alternates would be offered those spots. My recruiter told me that the alternates are offered the first slots the next fiscal year, which will be this October.

    Yes, what textlak said. We are considered professionally qualified by Navy standards, however, did not make board. Instead, we are placed as alternates. If the original pool of people they chose do not or cannot make the commitment, then move up into their slot. I was kind of bummed about it, however, things happen for a reason. It is better than being disqualified completely. Keep me posted!

    I was told I was selected by the board in December but just recently found out I am supposed to commission this month and go to ODS June 4th. They never came out and said I was an alternate but I am pretty sure that's the case based on little things they have said. My recruiter has a weird way of saying things. I'm credentialed in ER.
