Langley AFB- New Med/Surg Nurse

  1. 1
    I'm a new grad RN and was just selected in the July NTP board. Headed to COT in Jan and after NTP will be assigned to Langley. My first choice was Lackland due to being more familiar with their setup.

    Looking for anybody with insight about
    - Hospital/Units at Langley- pt load, experiences, etc.
    - How the base is- recreation, housing, etc.
    - Any advice/guidance to help get the most out of the transition.

    Thanks for any info!

    I don't really have any answers to your questions unfortunately- but I need them as well! I'll be going to COT in March, then NTP, then also be stationed at Langely (L&D) and would love to know these answers! I am currently in contact with a Major at Langely and she loves the location. Says there is a lot to do on base and around (DC is only 3 hours away). She lives off base and says there is usually a wait list for on base housing... I'm Looking for answers too :-)

    Good to know somebody else is looking for the same information! If you find anything, let me know! I'll do the same if I find anything out. I'm extremely excited for the area, on and off base! I'm counting down the days to COT and can't wait to get started!

    Hello

    Let me start by saying that im a nursing student so im not familiar with specific info about the hospital at Langley. But I am a dependent and know a little bit about the area. Im only familiar with the local bases. So I would put Langley at the top of the list in this area. Its a nice base. The hospital at Langley is a nice facility. They're doing a lot of construction with the hopital. It seems like every 6 months or so there is some kind of renovation going on.
    On a side note the base has a huge gym with indoor/outdoor track and a indoor pool. There is a small movie theater on base that is a lot cheaper then the local theaters in the area. The movies are not the newest in the box office. LOL The base housing has just been renovated and looks really nice on the inside.
    Langley is located in the Hampton Roads area and there is plenty to do. There are a couple beaches close to Langley (Buckroe, Yorktown, Virginia Beach). Bush Gardens and Water Country, amusement parks, are about 30 minutes from langley. There is a brand new mall, Penisula Towne Center is about 5 minutes from the base. Norfolk, Va is where the night life is. Plenty of churches and good schools if you have kids.

    Good Luck
