    Hbaum,Wichita falls. I agree. August can not come soon enough. It's not just waiting for August, but the end of it or early September. Uuugghhhhh, can be any more torturous? Lol Reading these daily blogs do help put a smile on my face and ease the tension
    Agreed. It always helps to know we're not alone lol

    I am so glad I am on vacation right now to relax! I caught a big blue claw crab this morning too so hopefully luck is on my side!! :-D We will find out the exact number of applicants and selected after this week probably. Do you think it will only take them one day to determine all of the applications? My recruiter sent in 3-4 for Arizona and one is an automatic in because he/she is in the Air Force already and went through the nursing commission program. 56 doesn't seem like too many for the whole west coast though. I was expecting 300+ applicants given what the economy is like!

    Just came across this site, I must say I am impress with the amount of resources and support it offers.
    A little about me.

    Bio:
    29 years old male
    5 feet 10 inches tall

    Education:
    Studied music for 3 year in Africa prior to moving to the US in 2004
    BSN in Nursing – University Of Massachusetts, Boston
    Graduated with 3.4 GPA
    Work History:
    Worked at a skilled nursing facility for about a year
    Currently working as a school nurse/summer camp nurse


    Application Status/ Info:
    Started the grueling process of applying to the USAF as a direct commissioned officer in the nurse corp. about a year ago. I was not selected for the clinical nurse position I had applied for because according to the selection board my work experience was not substantial enough to qualify for the position I applied for.
    After the bad news I was encouraged to apply for the USAF (NTP) Nurse Transitioning Program which is a program that prepares new graduate nurses for Medical-surgical and OBGYN positions after commissioning.
    I applied to NTP program, completed all my paperwork in March, 2012, went to MEP, and also finish my interview with the Chief Nurse which I did pretty well on.

    At the current moment I am waiting for the selection board for July 2012 just like the others on this forum. So I hope we all get some good news.

    I will post updates to my progress here.

    I have no idea how many will be accepted...I don't think any of our recruiters will know that. But I could be wrong. But definitely not as many applicants applied as I was thinking! always good for the odds!
