Hello. I'm currently enlisted (not a medical MOS) in the Army and coming up fast on my ETS date. I want to become a nurse but I also would like to be an officer in the Army. I'm going to be living in Southern California (Near Oceanside) once I get out of the Army.
So here are my questions. If I go through ROTC what is a good school to go to? I've been trying to look around online and it seems like there is a long wait list for all of them. My concern is I'm 23 and I know there is an age limit to your graduation date if you are wishing to get the ROTC scholarship
money. I know you can skip ROTC and become a nurse then become an officer. But does it have to be a BSN or can you do it with an ADN? If that's the case can I go to a vocational school (and skip the wait list) for that? Or maybe I could get my LVN at a vocational school, then get my BSN at a school that offers ROTC? Would that help at all for the wait? I'm concerned about the waitlist because I don't want to become to old to be an officer and I don't want to lose momentum in school.
Any advice on the subject would be wonderful!!!
