Not sure if anyone will be able to shed some light on this but I figured it's worth a shot. I'm looking at starting nursing school
in the fall with the intention of apply for a commission in the Navy Nurse Corps when I'm finished. The main thing that concerns me is that I have a RE3 reenlistment code I received when I was medically discharged from the Coast Guard back in 2013. The condition was not permanent and is no longer an issue and I can get a waiver for it. I hit a road block with the Coast Guard when I tried to apply for a commission and they told me that they would not accept an RE3 waiver for my application.
When I spoke to my Navy officer recruiter, he told me that that would be up to the individuals at MEPs to determine whether or not I was clear for service. This actually came as good news to me because I did not even get to MEPs with the Coast Guard and I believe that I would have a good shot with MEPs to receive a waiver. Still a little nervous though.
Like I said, I know it's a long shot but do another other Navy nurses or applicants have a similar experience?
