    That's amazing!! Congratulations! I'm so excited!
    Do you have previous nursing experience? Have you heard back where you'll be stationed?

    Sorry for the delay- for some reason I never got a notification about this. Congratulations to you too! I don't have any previous experience aside from nursing school clinicals (was acutally an English major in my first degree). Excited to hopefully know where I'm headed soon... It's an interesting list of locations. What are you leaning towards?

    Does anyone know if you can apply for the NCP if you are enrolled in an entry level master's program? it's a pre-licensure program for non-RNs. Just curious if the NCP is only for undergraduate (even if the grad program is not for advanced practice RN). I applied to ABSN and entry level master's programs, so wondering what my options will be.

    Nursing will be my second degree. Do they consider the GPA of your first degree at all? I'm hoping they don't because I was really unmotivated during undergrad (graduated with 3.1), but then turned around to get a 4.0 in all nursing prereqs.

    I know this thread is a few months old, but it's the most recent one I could find regarding NCP. Thanks!!

    try seeking a recruiter for a definite answer. It never hurts to talk to them. However, make sure you find a medical officer recruiter. If the enlisted recruiters are still pushy be as aggressive with them.

    As as far as gpa, yes they calculate all classes. I had taken a college course in high school,completely forgot about it, and my recruiter asked for the transcript. You will submit all transcripts to the recruiter. However, the board will take your first degree into consideration. They will look at everything in your package and base a decision off of it.

    Thanks for your response! I'm planning on talking to a recruiter soon, but I heard that they don't want to talk to you until you have at least a letter of admission. I'm still a month or two away from finding out my acceptances.

    Yes that's the first thing they ask you. You'll be able to start the process as soon as you find out. The major things that slow your package down are meps, security clearance, and letter of recommendations. If you're set start working on asking you professors for recommendations. I'm meeting with a recruiter Thursday and I can see if there's any new information I can relay.
