Question About Air Force Summer 2012 NTP Board - page 2

Hello Everyone, So I'm currently nearing the end of my second semester of nursing school with three more semesters to go. I will be graduating in May 2013. I've talked to my local Air Force... Read More

    UCAFblue, the CV was part of my workbook. It was one of the last pages. Also, with loan repayment, for signing up for three years you get up to $40,000 to pay off loans. With four years you get 30 to do what you want with, and with six you get 40 for your loans and 20 to do what you want with.

    I'm probably doing 3 as well. My husband enlisted for six, and he doesn't regret it because he got promoted faster, but he wishes he wasn't so "stuck". I also figure If I decide to commit more after 3 years there will probably be a bonus for doing more time.

    CVA311,

    I'm applying for the July 2012 NTP board as well. I live in SLC and noticed you said you're recruiter is in Utah. I'm just curious if you're recruiter is the same one I'm working with? TSgt Menchaca? It sure is a lot of work getting the application packet together but hopefully it is all worth it in the end. By the looks of this discussion alone, there are already 3 of us going for the NTP this year in Idaho/Utah alone! I was told at one point that they are only taking 25 spots nationwide in the NTP this July.

    At LN75, looks like you had your interview. I'm hoping that comes my way in the next month or two. Wish you all the best of luck!

    My bad. It will be nice to have that step marked off the list. From what I hear, the interview with the nursing higher up is weighted pretty heavily. I will definitely let you know how it goes! It is quite the process but reading through COT training and thinking about where you could be a year from now, I get excited about the possibilities!

    SLC2012, we have the same recruiter . I like how three of us are from around the same area!

    They are only taking 25 spots? Yikes! I guess that is just motivation to make sure our packets are perfect. I remember reading that last year they took 290 applicants for NTP, but I guess that was for the entire year.

    What a small world it can be sometimes. They told me the 25 number when I first met with them in September. It definitely provides some motivation to make sure our packets our top notch! I'm not sure on this, but some spots may also already be unofficially taken by the enlistment to commissioning nurse program (don't remember the official name but saw people positing on AF facebook groups saying they were in that program and accepted into the NTP for that timeframe).

    Have you already gone to MEPS? If not, it was pretty laid back down here in SLC. Mainly a lot of hurry up and wait with filling out a lot of forms. I wish you all the best of luck and I imagine we'll see each others posts on here every now and then!

    I haven't been to MEPS yet, but will be going some time this month. There is a MEPS in Boise, so that's the one I'm going to (I'm sure it is a lot smaller than the one in SLC). I'm looking forward to the hurry up and wait experience. lol

    Hey SLC2012 and CVA311,

    I was just curious if your recruiters told you when you would find out results if you were accepted for commissioning. I, too, have sent in my packet for application to the NTP for this July meeting. My recruiter said I'd hear back sometime around late August...but I didn't know if any of you had a specific date of when we find out?

    Thanks!

    Hi HBaum, welcome to the boards!! I also applied for the NTP this July and was told by my recruiter that August 10th is supposed to be the release date for the results of the board...although I've heard that it is common not to hear anything for a couple of weeks after the "release date." So, it could really be the end of August or beginning of September before we hear anything.

    How many of you applied for Med/Surg and how many for OB? I talked to my recruiter and she said there are going to be about 40 chosen for Med/Surg and only 10 or so for OB for next year's NTP program! Eeeek!

    Med surg. Don't be too concerned about the numbers your recruiter gave you...if you read back through all the posts in this and the other thread you'll see that we've all been hearing different numbers. My recruiter won't even venture a guess because she says the number of slots isn't made public prior to the board...so who knows where the other recruiters are getting their numbers. Could be just estimates based on their experience with past boards...could be just guesses...or maybe they have access to info my recruiter doesn't. Who knows

    Hmmm. This waiting process just stinks! Lol. Did you do med/surg?
