    Interesting ... that must have been a recent change because the last thing I saw was that 66Hs were eligible for the ISP. I haven't been paying close attention, though, since I already got my ISP.

    This was the lastest I saw: https://hr.mods.army.mil/SpecialPay/...s 20100628.pdf
    I am gonna have to ask her to look into it. Basically I think alot of those things were around, but just before the board they held back a bunch of cv's because the bonuses were pulled for 66h and alot of other things were yanked. sucks.

    Lunah, to be clear can you explain exactly what the ISP is, and did you have that in your contract first?

    From what I understand the ISP, is the same as the course guarantee. And you do get $80k still when you pass the course and your exam. The only courses eligible for the $80k are CC/ICU, OR, OB, or psych. They kept this bonus intact to help retain the nurses. I have the course guarantee in my contract. Hope this helps

    She has the course guarantee the CC one, but we heard nothing about the ISP.

    Nursespouse, my recruiter told me the RNISP is the same as the course guarantee. I'm sending him an email tomorrow and will double check about the ISP/course guarantee. I'll let you know what I hear. FYI...i know y'all are moving from FL to OK. I feel your pain as I am moving from Colorado (hiking, snowboarding, fishing, rafting, hunting, snowmobiling) to Georgia. No Rocky Mountains in GA Looking forward to different adventures in a new part of the country!

    Nor the RN ISP is not the same as a course guarantee. The ISP is a bonus for having your certification in your speciality area and signing a commentment for 1-4 years. The bonus runs from 5K/year for a 1 year commentment to 20K/yr for a 4 year commentment. There are rules about the RN ISP when you are in your 1st ADSO (active duty service obligation) and can not recall off the top of my head. The course guarantee is just that, it is a guarantee that you will go to one of the courses which give you a speciality. Once you complete your course you will have a ADSO of 1 year. This can be served concurent with other ADSO 's. I think the 80K LuaRiN is talking about is the total bonus. The bonus is paid out yearly not one lump payment. For most certification exam's you have to work in the area for 2 years and so many hours. Your time for the 2 year period starts on the 1st day of the course.

    From what I understand there are changes coming on the ISP, just dont when or what yet. They AMEDD was talking about it last year, but still no changes last I heard.

    Just went and looked up the RN ISP from the HRC website here are some details.

    Speciality areas eligible for the ISP
    -Perioperative (66E)
    -Critical Care (66H8A)
    -Emergency (66HM5)
    -OB/GYN (66G)
    -Med/Surg (66H)
    -Psych (66C)
    -Community/ public health (66B)
    -Midwife (66G8D)
    -Nurse Practitioner (66P)

    Also a obligated specialty RN who is still under their initial ADSO can sign a 1 year ISP for 5 K. This is RN's who have training or accession incentives obligation ie ROTC, ANCP, etc. If they have less then 1 year on your initial ADSO as stated before or are an unobligated or direct commission (without training/accession incentives) RN you can sign a 1 thru 4 year contract. If I remember right student loan repayment falls under accession incentive since I could not sign my contract for 4 years until after I completed 2 years since my student loan repayment had a 3 year ADSO.

    Hopes this helps some.

    Thank you Jeck, so how I understand it, though it is not in her contract, she can still take advantage of it later as long as she has 1 more year on her original ADSO? Thanks for all that info.

    Has everybody else received their written orders, packing lists, and BOLC info? I haven't yet. I did get a verbal call with my BOLC date and a welcome letter with my future duty post, but nothing else yet. The welcome letter asked me to confirm my email which I did, but I still haven't gotten anything else. I am getting antsey to start buying stuff on the packing list and I need my orders for housing. Do these come via email. Should I call someone? My recruiter or the person who sent me the welcome letter. As usual I feel like a blind woman walking through this as I know not sheer to go so please lead me brothers and sisters! Getting so excited! Only a few days left at my job and just weeks leave before I leave my babies!

    From what others have posted who went to BOLC in the last couple of years you should get your orders 2-3 weeks out.
