I know this question has probably been answered a few times on here, but it's probably outdated. What I really wanna know is it still near impossible to get into the Air Force as a new grad. I start a BSN program in September. I'm prior active duty enlisted, however, I still feel as though it is still my calling to serve this great nation. I'm not interested in loan repayment and all that jazz. I just want the opportunity to wear Air Force Blue again.What do you folks think? If anyone on here is a recruiter I'd love to have your input. If tou aren't id still appreciate any responses. Just tell me how it is guys.
The Airforce had a recruiting freeze a year ago. I am not certain of their recruiting policy as of to date. But, I would call a recruiter in your area to check into the new policies. If you'd like you could always start working at one of the military hospitals, if you are near a military instillation.
Other than that, the military is actually starting to chapter out a lot of individuals to save money. The wars are nearing an end, and the need for new soldiers is becoming not as urgent. The last time I heard from a senior enlisted individual, the military was looking to end service contracts for up to 200,000 soldiers/sailors/airmen by the end of 2012..
But, nurses will always be needed at the military hospitals. If your passion is to be surrounded by service members once again, look onto USAJOBS.gov for open vacancies. There are always openings for nurses( the process of hiring is a long one), but former service members have preferable status!
