    Thanks for the info aggie...I decided that it would be best for me to not rush this because I want to be a first time go when it comes to the NCLEX.

    Congrats kyexplorer on your selection. I was shocked to see so few people selected this FY

    your school is a small factor when it comes to the nclex. many schools boast high numbers but do not factor in the numbers they do not allow to test. i passed my test on the first try took it on june 30th a month after school. the schools with the high first time go % are the two year programs. what you learn in school is nothing like the nclex. some of my classmates with 3.7 and higher have failed the test. because they assumed honors mean pass on the nclex. i have not come across any aecp students who have not passed on first try. the key is to get into as many schools as you can. i have friends at my school, duke and unc chapel hill that have classmates that did not get to write for the nclex because the exit exam predictors and instructors said they were not ready. i suggest you purchase the kaplan to get an understanding of the nclex it is a computer adaptive test meaning it gets harder as you are correct and easier as you are wrong. you can get more than half right and still fail because your competence level is low. the nclex is application based and school is knowledge based. the two year programs are application based with more clinical hours. the bsn programs must have a focus on leadership. your school or any nclex prep program can not take the test for you. i am assuming by your name you are a lab tech. if true get with a nurse or ward medic and follow them until school. the nclex has changed this year because the nursing board felt that the test in the past did not test what new nurses needed to know (priority and client needs). remember many folk are changing jobs and seats are scarce so you get into a school. you take them all and make your chose from there.

    Great information. After finding out I was accepted into the AECP program, I began focusing on applying to schools with high 1st time pass rates. I know I have a lot to learn in a short period of time, but have already began preparing myself for this. I already made plans to shadow some of the nurses at WRAMC from now until I leave for school. The information and guidance you have provided means a lot. Thanks. Hopefully I'll have several schools to choose from in November.

    Contact an AMEDD recruiter: http://www.goarmy.com/locate-a-recruiter.html -- Select "AMEDD" and put in your ZIP code. Good luck with school!

    RN2b.. are you currently enlisted? AECP info can be found by searching MILPER messages... this will provide contact info and steps to take etc.

    Thanks for the tips!
    I was active 4.5 years, now AZNG in Tucson. I sent out the info email to SFC Florey, but not getting any answers. I wonder if one can be accepted into AECP after already having started nursing school (i start in january at the U of A.) And where can these "helpful" AECP recruiters be found? Hehe, this is so counfounding!

    Sorry AECP doesn't work that way. You can find the FY12 message in AKO by doing a search for AECP. If you want to apply for AECP, you can only apply for FY12 (begin classes 1 Jan 2012). The deadline for applications will be 1 Feb. SFC Forney at USAREC will be your POC.
