    Currently 6 months, though there is talk that it will go to one year. If you have not started the process, start now because by the time everything goes through you will have at least 6 months experience.

    I don't think there are any more Fiscal year 2011 boards for experienced nurses. Last board for FY 2011, which packets were sent in is this month (March 2011) was for the NTP nurses, who should know the results by the end of next month (April 2011). The last experienced board that I know if was in November 2010. The next board that I know about is this July/August (date may change slightly) 2011 for experienced nurses. As far as my packet goes, I am pretty much all done with everything. All I have left for my packet is to look over it/make sure everything is correct and sign a few things. This board has been a long time coming for me since I started this whole process in June 2010.

    As I mentioned in other post here, I hope to know the budget for Fiscal Year 2012 (still being worked on in, which current deadline was extended to April 8th) soon and once that is passed we should have an idea of how many people they look to bring on. The board could potentially be moved up a few weeks if the AF deems necessary. So if you haven't gotten you packet squared away, do it know and get it wrapped up. Also, this would be the first board for FY 2012, so you would probably have a better chance of being selected at this board.

    One thing that the Air Force or military in general do is simply not hire people. They have to replace those who leave, and their entire system of recruiting is based off of this. Think of it is a revolving door in that if they don't bring in people this year, they are going to have a problem in coming years.

    To all, keep in contact with your recruiters, call them or email them weekly. I will post any info about upcoming boards or other information that I know of.

    AF June boards still on as far as I know for NP level I am sure they have a mix of nurses in there but not sure. The federal budget issues could really have an impact on this too.
