FY2014 Navy Nurse Corps Direct Accession

  1. 3 Hi everyone. I am trying to join the Navy Nurse Corps for FY 2014 (Oct. 2013). I know this is a bit early for a thread like this but I plan on beginning my package in January 2013 to allow maximum time to perfect my application kit. I will be graduating with my BSN May 2013 and plan on taking NCLEX shortly after. I am hoping my kit will be triple checked before I submit it to the board. I am in the process of contacting a healthcare recruiter is San Diego right now and hopefully get stuff moving along. I just wanted to post this thread for others that are also planning on applying for FY2014 commissioning. I will be sharing information as the process goes along so you guys can get an idea of timeframe of events. I know I have been on all these similar threads trolling for answers in the hopes of adequate preparation.. Hope to meet some of you with similar goals soon Kim

    Congratulations Kim, and good luck. I'm considering joining the service as well depending on the market when I graduate a BSN program. I have 8 years enlisted, so it'll be nice to get commissioned as an 0-2E, or even as an 0-3E if I spend some extra time in the field before hand (The way I understand it is for every year RN experience you have prior to commissioning, 6 months is applied to time in grade!).

    Hi there. I also have 8 years enlisted in the USMC. As a new grad, we would go in as an O1-E. Maybe I could land a job before package goes to board to get some experience :-) I'm loving critical care too! I know as a new grad going into Navy, most likely we will be put med-surg but that's fine too! I'm just excited to finally be moving into the next phase of my life!

    Hi there. I am pushing for Active Duty so I can take advantage of the New Grad program. However, if it is possible to apply for both, such as AD being primary and Reserves as secondary, I will do it, to increase my chances of being commissioned. I doubt we could apply for both though. I really want AD so I can continue my "time in service" years. I already have 8 yrs prior enlisted so technically all I need is 12 more years to be eligible to retire :-) !!!

    Hi I am looking for information on how to apply and things I need to do. Could u provide me with a number because I have spoken with recruiters and they are clueless about the program. I would really appreciate your help.

    Hey, guys! I also plan on applying for DA this fall. I would take either Active or Reserve. I graduate with my BSN in December, so I won't have any experience besides clinical. I was AD Navy as an IT for 4 years. I miss the lifestyle. Good luck to everyone!

    PennyMc,

    I would start by locating your nearest Healthcare recruiter. Don't talk to the enlisted guys because they have no jurisdiction on officers. I live in Milwaukee and my recruiter is based out of Chicago.

    Hi. Because you graduate in December, I think that you will probably miss the boards for FY2014. Most application packages are sent Aug/Sept for the October boards and then shortly after, selections are made. But that is something a healthcare recruiter could verify. You would most likely have to wait until FY2015 boards. But it doesn't hurt to get all the admin stuff out of the way :-)

    I won't miss the boards. *If* I were selected, I would just leave after I take the NCLEX.

    Congratulations on your decision to serve and best of luck to you during the lenghty application process. Before I joined the Navy as a healthcare administrator, I looked to the allnurses website for the wealth of information that can be found here. Now I'm currently a Medical Programs Recruiter for the Navy... I decided to officially register on this site as way to "give back" to the community that helped me out. Hopefully I can be a resource to any who are looking for insight/guidance in joining the military. I can speak as an active duty Service Member in the health field and also as a recruiter

    Remember bebejasmine, time as an RN is also applied upon commissioning. I believe that 50% of your time as an RN counts toward T.I.G. Ask your recruiter about this. With enough RN experience it's possible to be commissioned as an 03E.

    Keep that in mind in case you don't get selected for FY 2014 but build up experience before then.
