    Sorry the AF has oldest age limit at 47 (without waiver). I'm guessing you would have to show some exceptional ability to get a waiver but I don't know. If you have prior service that might help but again not sure.

    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.

    Lamar, I believe that was a pilot program. The link I have for it is now dead, so that makes me think it's finished.
