So I had applied for the Navy Nurse Corps about a year and a half ago.. while I was still in nursing school. After graduating with my BSN, obtaining my RN and sending out a bunch of resumes and applications to kill some time, I finally accepted a position in NY at a major teaching hospital. I moved to NY in December, losing faith a bit while waiting to hear if I was selected or not. In January I found out that I was on the alternate list because of the # of applicants.. as April 16th I was approved and given my selection letter!! I cannot believe it's finally happening.
Now I am anxiously working with my detailer to obtain my orders and be commissioned back home. In the meantime, I need to put my 2 weeks in at work once I find out my orders.. and move back home and put all my furniture in storage. For anyone who has recently gone through working with their detailer for orders, how long did it take for you to get them? Also, I know there is an ODS class May 13th but that is so close so I'm hoping to get in July's class.
For other Navy Nurse hopefuls, hang in there! Patience is key.. even when you start to lose sight of it, because eventually everything will fall into place!
