New Army Nurse Corps officers: first things first! - page 3

I am speaking fondly to my direct commission brethren (and sistren?) who don't know their ORB from their iPERMS. Some of this will seem obvious to prior service folks, or people who have been in for... Read More

    Hi Lunah,
    I'm a med/surg RN, but I want join the Nurse Corps as an ICU RN. Should I get some ICU experience outside first, or can I move from m/s to icu easily once I'm serving?
    If you want to come in as an ICU nurse, your best bet is to get ICU experience. The Army Nurse Corps is overstrength as far as med/surg goes, so critical care nurses are more likely to get selected. It's very competitive right now.

    Just finished my last final 2 days ago but walk the stage on the 10th. Got an email today about getting everything ready for a possible JUL 15th start date but everything depends upon NCLEX of course. In Houston, where you at?

    I'm in Huntsville. I got my email a few days ago. They want me to take my NCLEX in the next 45 days with 15 JUL being my possible start date also

    Thanks, LunahRN, for the info!

    I am a 66H who comissioned in June 2012. It has been a rocky experience so far. I was just got dropped from the AMEDD, and I am hoping to get trained as a 66E b/c of over the overstrength issues I am running into.

    I plan to save your advice, as I feel it could come in VERY handy soon! Coming in with NO prior military experience has made it tricky ("whats an ASU???).

    Thanks again!

    What do you mean you got dropped? What is your MOS now?

    If you go to the Army Nurse Corps section on HRC (https://www.hrc.army.mil/site/protec...urse/index.htm), click on "Prof Development" on the left side and then you'll see a section called "transcript processing" that will give you the address (or go to https://www.hrc.army.mil/Default.aspx?ID=5636). It's a little non-intuitive!

    There is another link I just found: "Preparing for Army Nurse Corps Promotion and Selection" -- https://www.hrc.army.mil/Default.aspx?ID=10971 -- probably also requires CAC access/authorization.

    Just a quick follow-up: the list came out and I was selected for CPT. Hooray! Not sure how soon I will pin on, but I am hoping to do so while I am still deployed. The selection rate was 70%, according to an email I received from my Assistant DCN. I am sure there are many great officers/nurses among those not selected, and they will get another look next year.
