    Well, speaking for the Army, you can apply for an age waiver. But it all depends upon "the needs of the Army" and from what I have learned from this forum, you should apply now for FY 2012. Also helps if you have certification as 8A or 5M.
    The Reserves: you will still need to apply for an age waiver and again depending upon the needs of the state and TPU.
    Good Luck

    I read a msg from aRNmy stating the army reserve offered a 2 year commitment for 46-60 y/o RNs. I am trying to find out if this is legit. I would be grateful for all the help you can give. Thanks and have a great day.
