I've been lurking and reading this forum over the past several months, and it convinced me enough that Air Force nursing is where I want to be. Yesterday I started the application. I'm 29, am finishing up my BSN in May(have my RN already, though no job, thanks economy), and hope to commission when I graduate.
For me, the scariest part is COT. I'm already starting a running program (I am NOT a runner, so I figure I'll need the whole time!). How bad is the PT? Is there a lot of yelling? The recruiter obviously doesn't want to tell me how hard it is really, for obvious reasons. Does anyone have a training program that worked for them?
Also, this year there will only be one NTP board, so it sounds pretty competitive. What has it been like in the past couple years. I know for FY 10 they said it would be competitive then they took almost everyone, eventually.
I am so excited and nervous, because I really want this, any advice/ encouragement you can give would be great!
