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 a while ... as one of the... Read More

    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?

    does anyone know the exact HRC address where I can send my transcripts? or point me in the right direction where I can find it?? I went to www.hrc.army.mil but can't find an exact address where to send transcripts

    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.
    oaktown2 and Enthused RN like this.

    Congrats Lunah!!

    It's really nice of you to share all this info. Being AF, I find that there is so much stuff that I'm supposed to know, but no one will tell me and there's no place to go find the info - If I had a clue I was supposed to even look for some answers to unasked questions. Worse, when I ask questions people look at me like I'm stupid or get annoyed that I ask. But I have figured out that most people act rude like that because they don't know either.

    Keep sharing all your stories!
