    Hello to all. I am new to this site. I have been trying to read other nurses's expeirences regarding becoming an army nurse. Please correct me if I am mistaken...
    1) To my understanding, the army only accepts RNs with a completed BSN.
    2) For a RN without a BSN a better way to get a army nurse job is to obtain a BSN prior to enlisting.
    3)if #2 was the choice made... 1) does the army have any requirements regarding which BSN school graduate from?, 2) would the army help pay student loans?
    4) Once you have your BSN you can apply for a job in the Army Nurse Board, which apprently is very difficult to obtain?

    I have been reading through postings for the last weeks, but the information was not too recent. Has anybody succeed in this goal I would like some advice. dont want to sign up for something cant get out of. I heard the recruiters tell you what you want to hear to get you in. Thank you

    2) for a rn without a bsn a better way to get a army nurse job is to obtain a bsn prior to enlisting. yes, if you enlist you will not work as a rn but a lpn if you become a 68wm6.
    3)if #2 was the choice made... 1) does the army have any requirements regarding which bsn school graduate from?, 2) would the army help pay student loans? the school must be accredited, go to goarmy.com and follow the links to nursing and they will tell you. yes, the do have a student loan repayment program. since programs change all the time you will need to speak with a recruiter about this.
    4) once you have your bsn you can apply for a job in the army nurse board, which apprently is very difficult to obtain? not sure what you mean by army nurse board. yes you need to apply thru a recruiter to be commissioned and there are alot more applicants then positions.

    the recruiters do not have to sell the position to get you in since there is more applicants then positions. recruiters are sales people trying to sell you a career. you will need to speak with a health care recruiter, not the enlisted recruiter down the street, for you to get upto date information about the minimun standards needed along with benefits.
