Jul 27, '11Quote from jeckrnFt Benning MACH ER!! Not a MEDCEN, but enough to get me started!!So where did you end up getting stationed?
Jul 27, '11FT Stewart Winn ACH, OR. Presently taking ACCC at Ft. Sam. Will be going to Ft. Carson with the 2nd FST next year. The 14th CSH was one of my choices to PCS to next year.
Aug 8, '11My recruiter said the same thing about experience requirements now, 2 years for AD and 6 months for reserves. I'm graduating in December, so he said if I get a job after graduation I can work on my packet during the first 6 months of work and apply next October which he says is the prefect time. I hope I can get that job so I can join!!!
Aug 25, '11It is incredibly difficult to get in right now. There is only one board in November, there is a two year experience requirement and it will be even more selective than last year.
Mar 20, '12The Reserve components (of all branches, I was told by a USNR nursing recruiter) will only accept a BSN. So if you're an ADN nurse (like me!) who had hopes of getting back into the reserve forces, you still have work to do.
Keep in mind if you are prior service that your time served is deducted from the maximum age limit to a certain extent. The USNR recruiter, for instance, told met that without limit, while the USAF Reserves recruiter wrote that the max age limit will still be 47 regardless of any adjustment due to time served.
OK, back to the boards... :/
Mar 20, '12The Army Reserves was the oly service which accepted ADN's in the past. Even thou it is still listed the last time I checked they will not even considered a ADN at this time.
Aug 4, '12Hello 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
Aug 4, '12Quote from rnforithe 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.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. yes
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.
