    nursespouse- I fall under the 0-2 years of experience category. I am currently still a student. I do have a 3.9 GPA and an internship in the ICU (so hopefully that will help a little!) How about you?? Or are you an applicant's spouse?

    a spouse, but from what I hear they are selecting a portion of the people, specifically with less than 2 years. So I think you are good there. My wife has a little over 4 years, a 3.8, and a few certifications. that helped her. Still the group of nurses with experience are all very good. It is a tough field of talented nurses. Good luck on getting selected, the Army is an awesome experience.

    yeah the recruiter told my wife via email, that at the most we would know by next friday, but almost certainly sooner. I heard some good news, that almost all alternates from every year end up geting picked up. so even if you are an alternate, you still have a great chance of getting in,

    I do know know either, From what I heard around it seems like 6-10 ten people from each region applied, which from what i know isnt much.

    This waiting game is so difficult. The board met all week last week, and today I hope are celebrating today as it is the day they recognize Veteran's Day........HOWEVER, anxiously awaiting results. Has anyone heard WHEN they anticipate hearing back from anyone? If you havent, has anyone applied in the past----two years ago it took 4 weeks to hear back And this year I know the numbers they are taking are SUBSTANTIALLY less....

    I would like to just vent for a minute. Why do I hear from my recuiter last week............burning my phone up no less on Monday and Tuesday.....to tell me that my packet went to quality control and came back that they needed something from my malpractice insurance company stating that I didn't have any claims. If I didn't get this done by Tuesday, my packet would not be reviewed. Wow, two years of work comes down to this!!!!!!! I confirmed that it was faxed and called my recruiters twice. No call, no email and its been a week. I have no idea if my packet went. I am hoping that no news is good news. I am just ready to know either way so I can move forward. Will it be this week??? Also after I passed my physical, they had me sign somthing saying I would do 6 sixs and they are giving me the loan repayment for one three year period and a bonus for the other 3 year period. Am I going to see a final version of some sort of contract before I am sworn in??? This whole process is so confusing.

    I'm sorry Ana! Something like that happened to me too and I think everything was resolved but it was definitely last minute! Today is the first day we are supposed to hear back from the board... has anyone heard anything!?!??! Ahh dying over here! GL everyone!!

    Hi Ana,

    You are absolutely correct about the lengthy process. They usually do have some callouts at the last minute. I had the same issue. Two of the papers came back stating it need some adjustments. I send it back to them and Friday was the last day for the packet to be ready. But my packet status (as per my recruiter) said it was still at board QC, which basically means its being reviewed and not board ready. I spend like a year for all this process. And I had that constant thinking what if my packet is not board ready. But i found out after November 5th that my packet was board ready. So hang in there. Now if i get selected, that awesome if not i will just be satisfied that i tried. Like everyone else, i am waiting to hear back the result too. This waiting game is taking too long. Good luck to you.
