    Hey staugnurse,

    I'm 38 and this is second time applying due to it filling up so quick last year and packet didn't make it in in time. What extra stuff did you have done since you are 40. Have you recently started nursing or have been doing for a long time? What specialty are you applying to? How has your experience been with recruitment? Did you apply to any other branch? Apologies up front for all the questions? Trying to figure all this out as well. Thanks in advance.
    Sorry for the delay response, I missed the post. I had to get a Mammography, Pap smear, EKG, cholesterol level and I think that's all. I've been a RN since 2004 BSN for 1 year. I work in cardiovascular unit, navy considers it med/surg. My recruiter has been slow at times it took 2 months. She is at times hard to contact but I think most are just like her.

    I was told the first and second week of october they meet and make decisions and you can hear back within a week to 2-3 after that.

    Talked to my recruiter yesterday she told me board is one week from today October 26. So she is hoping to know who is selected 1-2 weeks after that...

    Did you find out if your kit was selected for the 1st board?

    Yes but it took credentialing 2.5 months so my packet was submitted the first week of September.

    It took 2.5 months for MEPs to be approved. My recruiter hasn't told me if my kit was or wasn't selected. I spoke to her Tuesday she said she wasn't informed either way. My kit was submitted mid September.

    The list came out today and I'm not on it for this board they do not know when the next board will be. My recruiter seems to think it will be about 2 weeks after this one. I'm getting so discouraged.

    Navywifeim I am sorry to hear that you are discouraged! If there is another board in 2 weeks, stay hopeful!! They wouldn't have a board if they weren't looking to pick up more people! I have a question though... Did your recruiter tell you about this "list"? I have had communication issues with mine and as far as she told me, everything was sent to NRC (I don't even know what that is) on 8/17. She told me I would be considered for the first board, but it seems like people who also thought they were are finding out differently. Is the only way for me to find this out from my recruiter?

    I don't understand if the list came out today (which my recruiter said too) how come some ppl knew or thought they were in first group? :-/

    She said my packet was with the program manager still and that it would go to the next board. This has been a long road and I just hate rejection so I guess that is why I'm getting so frustrated.

    Mine also told me well over a 100 were submitted and only 64 will be reviewed next board is November 30. They are a mixture of active duty, reserve, and student applicants so all other kits are being held until the next board.

    I also got the same bad news. Nov 30th for me as well. Better occupy myself for another month. I was given wrong information and thought I would be on the first board just like many of you. Oh well. Chances of acceptance are looking slimmer and slimmer.
