Yeah, I didn't get any guidance, but at least now I know that I'm not the only one scratching my head! I wasn't asked to interview again, the when the CNO heard I hadn't been selected she was a little ticked off and said it wasn't necesssary because she stood by our first interview. So at least I know that went well. I didn't know there was an October COT! That would also be an option. My thing is my father died just after Thanksgiving 2011, so going to COT during the holiday wasn't going to upset me too much because I welcome the distraction. I know how you feel about the Navy. I talked with the recruiter over the phone but according to him I have to have at least 90 days of experience with my BSN before I can apply. I asked if they even considered the fact I have been nursing for 7 years and he said no. Plus, there were no ER positions anyway. I wasn't even encouraged to call back if that tells you anything.
Consider me jealous of your trip to London. I went there when I was 16 with my high school choir and absolutely loved it. Hopefully if we get picked up one of the stations I put down for my overseas wish list was England. Hubby wasn't too thrilled because he doesn't like their weather, but I loved it over there and would love to go back. What bases did you pick for after COT? I picked Travis, Lackland, Peterson and Wright (I think), but I would be happy anywhere at this point. I have family in all the locations, plus my mother is now considered a dependant because I am moving back in with her to help support her, so she gets to come with us wherever I go. Which is a massive perk and took a big weight off the shoulders at the time, but another big reason I am praying I get picked this tome around, because its not just for me, hubby and our son, but its also to take care of her.
So the board meets May 10th, at least that is what I heard, when do you think we could hear yes or no? I, like you, am praying for yes, but am preparing again for no. The only good thing from prepping for this is that it motivated me to start exercising again and now I'm a run-a-holic.
