That is indeed correct. I am an ADN nurse. I am currently processing with My Army AMEDD recruiter for Reserve as a Direct Commissioned Officer in the Nurse Corps.
I am then cont. to complete my BSN in the mean time, and plan to be active within the next year, 2 at the latest.
May I ask..Are you speaking with a regular Army recruiter? or an AMEDD recruiter?
Some Reg. Army recruiters are not as informed about the medical positions, especially with those of us who all ready have degrees, and are seeking direct commissioning. (I went through 3 Recruiters before finally being directed to my AMEDD office, where I then, finally received accurate answers
) You should speak with an AMEDD recruiter, and they should have more answers for you, as many of them, also have had Medical experience, or a prev. Medical MOS / AOC.
