I'm currently a freshman in college pursuing a BSN degree. I have talked to an officer recruiter for the NCP (Nurse Candidate Program). I just got my application kit, and am starting to fill it out. Although I am worried that I will be declined because it is highly competitive.
I also thought of another idea while looking into all of these confusing programs.
Pursue the NCP and hope to be accepted while continuing my BSN degree.
Or I thought about joining the Navy Reserve as a (HM) Corpsman, while still getting my BSN and then applying for the Navy Nurse Corps.
Is that possible? I am familiar with the Medical Enlisted Commissioning Program, but am not sure if this is what I should be getting into.
I don't want to be stuck in a bad situation where I can't do what I want with my future because the military is not letting me transfer to the NNC. As I said, these programs are sometimes confusing, so I hope someone can help.
Thank you to anyone who can help.
