    I take my NCLEX on 5 July. I hope I make the August ODS! I am "tentatively" got to NAS Pensacola. I agree, its hard to find info on the smaller Naval hospitals.

    Good Luck on your NCLEX!!! and yes it is very hard to find info on the smaller ones which is sooo unfair

    If you need more info on Pensacola, a guy in my ODS class has been there a few months...I could try to get you in touch with him.

    I went to Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University in Atlanta Ga..how about you? and i called the number that was given on my orders for my sponsor but I was told that he or she would contact me in within 3 days and if I dont hear anything i should call back....well its been well over 3 days and I'm probably going to call back by the end of this week...the lady that I spoke with said that I will probably be getting a welcome packet or something. not really sure..im like you...just trying to handle things as they come bc i really dont know what to expect right now...
