army nursing - page 2

I am trying to snag a job with the army as a civilian nurse in Germany. I am very confused about this rating scale. I realize you accrue points for certain things. Anyone know how this works?... Read More

    Thank you for the information and the good wishes. I greatly appreciate the responses. I have to say I am a little confused since they posted the position. I am hoping that hiring freezes will not be the case. I have a job, two in fact so I am in no major rush other than very excited for new experiences for my family and myself. I could wait and reapply if necessary. I hope to hear something soon. I have been rated which is something. so I wait...

    No prob at all. I've gotten use to the ups and downs of GS / DoD / the like jobs with the hubbs the past 18 months or so. I would recommend trying to keep one eye on what's going on on the DoD/branch side while keeping the other on the position.

    I am currently stationed in Germany as a RN with the US Army. I applied in November for all and any position and took the first one which was offered to me. My first workday in Germany was Feb 15. They requested an earlier move but I needed an extra few weeks to get everything done..
    Greetings from Germany

    YAY BVFD 333. I have actually been trying to get in touch with you. I left a message on one of your boards. I cannot send a message privately yet. Do you love it? I am really hoping to get the position, as stated in earlier messages. I am so hoping it does not take 80 days to find out. Do they call you? email? where do you work. Feel free to send me a message I am sure I could respond. any info would be greatly appreciated. Shift length, hiring freezes etc!!!! Thanks so much!!!

    Obviously I am a little ridiculously excited and hopeful. Not normally so high strung about any thing.

    All the DoD branches are in a hiring freeze for civilians (http://www.govexec.com/defense/2013/...93/?oref=river )

    They did not notify me, I checked the status of my application and it stated "another applicant has been chosen for the position but an offer has not yet been made" I was very disappointed. I am a charge nurse in the OR and work per diem in the ED so I had hoped I was qualified for the position.

    Thank you very much and I will. Going to continue my education and get my BSN and masters. I have a BA in something else so it will not take quite as long. I had hoped being a charge nurse in the OR and an RN in the ED would qualify me for the OR position for which I applied, maybe I need to become more valuable in general. More education is never bad for forward motion. Thank you again.

    One thing is the BSN, the Federal Government is very big on it. The BA helps but if another candiate has a BSN the BSN will win almost everytime. Keep your head up and keep trying because if you dont the answer is always no. Even with the hiring freeze, some positions can still be filled.
