Hello you guys,
Okay, the new application package is re-packaged and nearly all set to go to the board, all we are waiting on is the confirmation letter from my school loan lenders to come back to verify the loan information for my school.
Although...the paperwork all says "loan for BSN" and of course....my program is an MSN! However, in this regard I have been reassured that the Army Nurse corps does recognize this an an entry.
I have not idea how long that will take to come back and now my recruiter is on his leave so I do not know when this packet will go before review.
Meanwhile, the Army Nurse Corps is trying to petition change of legislation in order to have MSN entry degrees recognized for student nurse candidacy.
While I will age out and graduate before this happens I do feel kind of relieved that hopefully the next person who applies for this will not experience the same outcome as I did.
p.s. will update again
p.p.s. my recruiter has reassured me again that he has seen lots of application packages and that he feels mine will be a first assignment, my choice of Fairbanks...I see that Ft WW has a brand spanking new hospital that is complete but will not become functional for one year while they get it furnished and functional! Wow, it would be neat if I could get Bassett community Army Hospital and a brand new hospital at that! Not sure again though, because as a new nurse graduate I do not know how many RNs they have and their current medical surgical unit is about 20 beds, (they do have an ER which I waived my GCS because I plan on ER and/or Community health), fingers crossed again!!
