First Duty Station?
- 0Apr 9, '12 by AG_RNHi Y'all,
My name is Aaron and I am in the NCP program graduating next month. After 4 long years I can finally see the light!!!
Anyway, I spoke to my LTCR today and learned that the 3 big Naval Hospitals (Bethesda, Portsmouth, and San Diego) have met their new grad requirements. I requested these 3 on my Duty Preference Sheet. My LTCR recommended Camp Lejeune, NAS Pensacola, and Camp Pendleton. He did not mention NAS Jacksonville and I totally forgot to ask if that was still available.
I am looking for the hospital that would give me (a new grad) the best experience
- 0Apr 11, '12 by Sw88tpeaI'm two months in. I didn't do NCP. I got my BSN, RN, worked a year, signed up, commissioned, and went to Officer Development School in February. I've been placed at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center. They still have nurse grads coming in, not very many though-one a month or so. With the choices you listed... I would go 'green' meaning go marine but I don't have much experience with it obviously.
I would see what the detailer has to say about the big three having 'met their requirements.' He's the only one that will really know that information. This is what the NKO website says.

If you are currently in a recruiting billet, please contact LCDR Gomez prior to contacting your assigned detailer to negotiate orders.

I'm in the NCP program too and am also graduating in May! I listed Bethesda and San Diego as my first and second choices but unfortunately LCDR Gomez told me those were all filled up. I got my third choice at Camp Lejeune. I'm really excited but so nervous! Where are you thinking about requesting since the Big Three are all booked up?
