I've gotten the ball rolling with my recruiter to join the Nurse Corps and I've got a few questions that you esteemed allnurses folks might have answers to. The recruiters, bless their hearts, don't always have the most current or accurate data.
-I discharged in March of '04 as a Captain, did NOT resign my commission, and went IRR...will I keep my same rank?
-I'm nearly 100% positive I won't have to attend COT.....?
-Does break in service affect retirement calculator?
-My eventual goal is to get into Critical Care. What is the general wait time to train into Critical Care from Med/Surg?
BTW the recruiter told me there are 77 open med-surg/clinical nursing slots. This seems very high. Any thoughts?
Thanks for your time.
