Does anyone here know if a BSN awarded from an online RN-BSN program like Chamberlain or WGU is acceptable to the Air Force or Navy? I can't find the answer anywhere so far after looking for weeks. I called and e-mailed the local... Read More

    Thanks so much and congrats on your commission!!!!! Also, you hit the nail on the head with your communication description.. at, not with. I did talk to someone yesterday with the Navy again yesterday afternoon and it was a little bit better, but not by much. They told me the soonest I could probably get in was 2014 regardless of program (NCP or direct). I did attempt to ask questions about the general timeline and such for the process, but the response was: "I don't know.. I'm not an officer, I just recruit them."

    The current plan is to focus on AF from here on out. My family has historically chosen AF to serve and my enlisted and reserve friends are very encouraging as well- they love AF whole-heartedly. Thanks again!

    You actually might have better luck with asking your questions here - if they are ones that could be answered based on others experiences. I am in the NCP and found that my recruiter was great - when he felt that he had something to tell me. If I wanted to know something, well, it was hit or miss. But I doubt people are going to be that interested if they can't do anything with you, of course that doesn't mean that you don't still have questions and you will want to be ready to act on whatever you choose as soon as things become available again. Good luck!

    I am taking one class before enrolling w/ excelsior (I'm currently a 4N). How did you do it? My neighbor is a Health Careers recruiter and is very negative about the track that I am pursuing. Please any info would be great! 2 years ago I had a package rejected by NECP due to the school changing their course plan after I submitted my package (from a fall and spring start to only a spring start). I am practically begging for whatever information you have.
    Thanks

    Can understand why your neighbor does not have a positive outlook about Excelsior. Remember the clinicals with them are hard, and they will fail you on many little things. I had a LPN who worked with me and was going to get failed out of clinicals because the velcro on the BP cuff was bad and she inflated the cuff greater then 10mmhg about last one. This was againist the facilities policy, she had to fight with them to allow her to continue the weekend. Remember, they are seeing if you are at a enter level during clinicals not school level. With that being said, many people to pass the clinicals thru them. Keep up the hard work.
