Pregnant when applying for the Air Force?Register Today!
This is a discussion on Pregnant when applying for the Air Force? in Government / Military Nursing, part of Nursing Specialties ... Quick question, I am currently gaining my one years experience to apply for the Air Force next...by coconutzz Oct 30, '11Quick question, I am currently gaining my one years experience to apply for the Air Force next October. I understand that I cannot be pregnant at COT, but are there other times I shouldn't be pregnant? I am only asking because I have a year until the boards I am applying for and longer than that until I would leave for COT if accepted. I just don't want to forever put off my other life plans while waiting for the opportunity to join the military. This process has been so long for me and is looking even longer now, I would hate to put off other things in my life without realizing I did not have to do so. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

i am fairly new to this site and saw your comment and thought i would join ya if you dont mind. i tried to apply for the boards this past feb but didnt get in cause my recruiter seems to think its because i am still in school until june. i am going to reapply for the boards but my recruiter seems to think that the boards are in september. i think you could be pregnant while you are waiting as long as its after your physical at meps. my recruiter said that for the boards this coming september/2012 then if i get in this time around, then i would leave for COT training JAN 9th. also with it being a new fiscal year then there are about 170 slots as opposed to 20 that i just went up against. are you applying for med-surg or some other nursing field? hope to hear from you soon.
- Mar 26, '12 by coconutzzHi! I am currently pregnant and now have more information thanks to my recruiter so I'll share You can be pregnant anytime except for MEPS and COT. If you have to get/renew your physical and are pregnant, you have to wait for 3 consecutive periods before it can be done (I would like to know how that is verified). Other than that, no big deal.
Last I heard the new fiscal year boards are in October 2012. I will be applying for the January 2013 board because I need to renew my physical after I have my baby. I'm an Operating Room Nurse, but my recruiter explained that if you apply as a specialty, you can also include that you would be willing to go Med-Surg if that would get you in. He had several applicants recently who tried to apply for a specialty but instead accepted a Med-Surg slot so they wouldn't be rejected completely from the Air Force. I hope things work out this time, but I also feel it is too early to get excited (for me at least) about how many applicants I'll be up against. Last time I applied, it was for NTP, it was something like 25 out of 150 were chosen. Are you applying for NTP or as a Fully Qualified?

i am applying for fully qualified. all i have ever been is a medsurg nurse for almost 4 years. its so hard to know what the are looking for when they review packets. im kinda glad that i didnt get picked recently cause its better for me to just focus on finishing school (which i will be done in june) and gets other things in order first before potentially leaving with my family. is this your first baby? congrats!! i have 2 girls myself.
