Hello to all of my allnurses family. I was speaking with my recruiter today who alerted me to the fact the nurse officers are not entitled to the Post 9-11 GI bill. Is this so? I thought that I read on military.com that the new bill encompassed enlisted and officer ranks. However, I did read on the va.gov website that prompted a question, it states:
If you are an officer who graduated from a service academy or received ROTC scholarships
, you also qualify for the new GI Bill benefits. However, your ROTC/Service Academy associated obligated active-duty service time does not count toward the three years necessary to qualify for the full benefits. "
So does this mean that since I did not graduate from a service academy, nor received scholarships(ROTC) that I am not eligible? I guess I would like to know is it open to all or not? Your input is most graciously welcomed.
