I hope everyone is doing well. I am going to keep this short and somewhat sweet. I am a new grad and I am very interested in working for the Army Medical Command in the various Forts either domestically or internationally. I have seen the job postings on Usajobs.gov and I have not come across any information regarding whether or not new grads are eligible for positions from both the job postings itself and internet searches. I have emailed a number of recruiters for these positions however I have not received any replies. Lastly, I have noticed that some of these positions are Direct-Hire Authority designated positions that simply, "expedites hiring by eliminating competitive rating and ranking, veterans' preference, and "rule of three" procedures". I assume that this authority may make it easier for a new grad to get a job for these positions.
Would anyone be so kind to shed light on whether or not the Army Medical Command considers new grad RNs for the open positions? Also, does anybody know what the application process is like?
Quick background about my experience: BSN prepared, experience working as a nursing assistant, experience working in public health, hold a masters degree (public administration), single, and an awesome dude.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I am not positive but I believe you will need 1 year experience. I just checked a adversited positioned and it stated that you did need 1 year experince but was not written very clear.
