Hi, my name is Hailey & I am looking for as much info as possible on becoming a Navy nurse.
I am currently a high school sophomore. I am planning on getting my bachelors in nursing after high school so I can join the Navy Nurse Corps & I have a few questions regarding that.
1.) I have heard to get into any branch of the military, you must take the ASVAB test. Since I am planning to attend college before joining the Navy, do I take the ASVAB at the same time I take my SAT/ACT? Or do I wait & take the ASVAB later on closer to the time I join?
2.) Can I specialize in a certain field of nursing in the Navy Nurse Corps (such as pediatrics or neonatal nursing)?
3.) I have also read that you have to go to select nursing schools that are certified with some government agencies or something if you want to join the Navy Nurse Corps? If this is so, how do I find out if the colleges I am considering are certified with these agencies?
Those are the three main questions I have but any other information that anyone thinks I should know about this topic is more than welcome. Thank you so much to anyone who is able to help answer these questions & give me any other information.
