    Gotcha! thanks for clearing that up! do they offer housing on base for officers after you finish your training? or are you required to get an apartment off base?
    Very rare to get housing on base as anything if you are single. If you are married, better chance. If you are married with children, even better chance to get base housing....however, there is sometimes a "wait" list for even that!

    Care&Joy, You're gonna show us all around, right?

    BTW If anyone wants/needs boots, I have a pair of Danner TFX Women's Gore-Tex Rough-Out boots size 8 for sale for $150 OBO. I wore them twice for about an hour outside each time and realized I needed the next half size up. I find this brand super comfy ( http://www.danner.com/desert-tfxr-wo...ary-boots.html ). PM me if interested, they'll be at BOLC with me.

    Oh, sureeeeeee, I'll show you how to get lost on base no prob! lol.
    I bought 2 pairs Danners at the base & have been wearing the 1 pair around... but am thinking I need a smaller size now after they squooshed down from walking. Hope they're not too big on me now. I might have to double-sock it...no matter how hot that will be

    Inspection Ready Berets?/ Are you authorized to wear them?
    I may be a little late, but the Black Beret with the light blue flash is the authorized headgear for all soldiers when in the garrison(any where other than the field almost) environment.
    Yes you are authorized. Please do not make the mistake of walking around post with the patrol cap on unless you are under specific instructions to wear it, or are on a work detail. That is a pet peeve of many Commanding Officers, and CSM's. Do not give anyone the ability to make an example out of you.

    Also if anyone else is in San Antonio, I am here too. I checked into building 592 this morning at 1130. FYI That is the post hotel (Big IHG sign out front across parade field from AMEDD Museum) I was hoping to get a room assigned on post as to avoid the morning commute, and traffic coming from the airport. It is a short drive, but why add additional stress?

    If anyone else is here, if you do decide to check in early, you will be charged the gov't. rate of $79/nightly until the 23rd, on which, the Army will pick up the tab for the duration of your course. I have not seen what the rooms look like as of yet. I am still waiting to be informed that my room is ready. So I am officially homeless for a few more hours.

    If you check in early you do not have to be in uniform, I did, and was stuck in it, and therefore limited in options of places to go until room is ready. They will need 1 copy of orders, a driver's license/mil ID, and a credit card.

    If anyone is flying in and needs to be picked up from the airport on tuesday, PM me and I will try to be available.

    Safe Traveling everyone!

    So I just started the nurse track at FSH and we heard that we are going to get to meet up with your class of nurses sometime this week or next week! I'm excited to meet all of you! When they give you the nametag at the meeting, include your AllNurses name on there so we can find each other!

    For any of my BOLC 11-113 peeps, I started a facebook page for us.I created a group for the general class, and one for nurse track. Search for it by class name.

    What are they "teaching" you in the nsg track? When I did mine, it was extremely useless.

    From what I've heard, they changed a lot. We just finished the Trauma Nurse Core Course, which reviewed and taught basic emergency assessments and skills, and we're starting in on the Army Nurse Standards of Care Model (ANSOC), which details the values that are central to the ANC and how those concepts are carried out on a daily basis on the floor, etc.
