So I am about 1 year out from graduating as an FNP (4.5 years RN experience). I made the call to the Army recruiter because my husband is AD Army, so it makes the most sense. The guy completely and totally blew me off. He told me the Army doesn't accept/commission new grad FNPs and hasn't done so for a few years at least. What? When I started my program, a healthcare recruiter told me no problem, just call us back when you are a year out from graduating, so why is this guy telling me the Army won't accept me until I have a year of experience? So I called the AF recruiter just for kicks to see if this was something that was true across all branches or what and he not only told me the AF would be glad to have me, but that as far as he knew, the Army accepted new grad FNPs as well and he couldn't understand why the recruiter had told me differently. So what is my recourse here? I realize that maybe the AF recruiter doesn't really know what is going on in Armyland recruiting, but the whole thing seems fishy based on what the healthcare recruiter told me when I was starting my program and also because there is nothing that I've seen anywhere which indicates that you need a year of experience before you can commission as an FNP. So does this guy just not want to work? Quota full and doesn't really care anymore? I don't get it and I also don't know what to do since he is the only guy in town. Just going AF is an option, but is not the easiest thing since my husband is Army and it is more difficult to get stationed in the same place. What do you guys think?
