Hi I'm deeply considering applying to the Army Nurse Candidate Program. I'm just curious on what life in the Nurse Corps is like? I'm not looking to making it a life long career, I'm thinking I'll do one stint or two. I do want to deploy and would like to know how many times I can expect to deploy in one 4-5 year stint? And how long deployments last. I also looked toward the Navy because I hear they travel more but my heart is calling for the Army. How long is BOLC? What is it like? Is it fork and knife school with some PT thrown in? Does the Army do things similar to the Navy in that they most likely make you nurse in an Army hospital the first year or two before deploying you? And do they have three big hospitals I am likely to be sent to like the Navy has its big three? Is it easy to make friends in BOLC and on base? Any advice and experiences would be helpful. Thank You!
