I have completed my BSN and worked in the emergency department for roughly 1 year after deciding to return to school to obtain a master's degree (psychiatric nurse practitioner). The program starts this fall and goes for about 2 years. I recently heard about how many different military branches have opportunities for NPs and wondered if I could get any first-hand information relating to this. I spoke with an Army healthcare recruiter and he eluded that applications for this year are not accepted until June for the HPSP program; is this true? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
