by AjaxAndronicus

Hey everybody, I'm starting a thread here for those applying to the Army Nurse Corps in FY2013. I figure this might be a good place to get to know other future nurse corps officers and a place for the veterans of the ANC to pass... Read More

    I was thinking the same thing....hopefully tomorrow's the day!! From my personal experience, you have to really really want to join the Army as the delays and paperwork would deter all but the most determined it's sounds like our hearts and kinds are in the right places--hopefully we will all meet and laugh over how worked up we all were!!

    My coping mechanism during most of this process has been to just assume its going to be a "no" so that I didn't get my hopes up. Every little step like getting the paperwork done, MEPs, QC were like small victories. If it actually happens I might seriously be unprepared for the news.other than my physical fitness part. I know that my reserve unit will be in Maryland and a five hour drive ( had to get that approved too). I agree that a person has to really want this bad to go thru everything. My motivation has never been money. I was shocked when they told me the bonus amount

    I think my recruiter has the day off. If anyone hears anything post it.

    I think they are cutting orders, I think next week will be good for all of us!

    You won't get orders quite yet. I didn't get mine until March 2011 (like three weeks before my report date!), and I was selected in December 2010. You also have to be "scrolled" by Congress first. Your seats at BOLC need to get funded (which caused a delay in orders last year due to the government budget issues), and you have to know your first duty station because that will be in your orders as well. Lots of things have to happen before orders! You have to sign your life away and get commissioned first.

    What does, "cutting orders" mean? I completely blew an appointment this am as I was so focused on perhaps getting news today! I am less optomistic we will hear today though and am starting to think it will be next week! I just hope we hear before the holiday. Anyone out there who is applying for Active duty thinking of going Reserves if not chosen for active duty? My recruiter said there are no incentives right now for reserves. Is this true?

    My wife is looking at doing that if she is not selected. Although there are no incentives, in the reserves you get the same opportunity to attend schools which make you a stronger candidate in the civilian world. I know it is not the best choice for some but it does definitely have it's benefits. I spoke with my wife's recruiter and he told me his reserve results came in and normally they come back to back so we should here something today.As far as orders go, everything in the military is done based off of orders. These documents are what tell you who, what, when where and what you are authorized to get whatever the order is for, done. EVen when Units deploy they receive orders to do so.

    Cutting orders means getting placed at a post I.e. 66h at Darnell army medical center, but i guess it take a long time for orders. It's all good, well know soon enough
