    Active from 95- 2000 and loved it. Why I asked, I'm not sure if the prosses is different if you still in the active reserve. If so, I'll try to be as much help as I can with COT.
    from what i can tell so far, the major difference between you and i is that you were accepted as a fully qualified RN, and i'm applying to the NTP board. near as i can tell, that means you'll go straight to work as an RN at your first duty station following COT. i on the other hand will go through the Nurse Transition Program for several weeks, then COT (or maybe the other way around??) and then on to my first duty station. will you be promoted to 1Lt or Capt after COT based on your years of RN experience?

    Hey LN75,

    I accepted the friend request as well. Good luck with your upcoming boards. Let us know how it goes. Oh, since you've been a nurse for a while why did you do the NTP boards instead of fully qualified (just asking because I don't know the requirements for the NTP board)? And I believe that you will go to COT first, the NTP training, then your first duty station (that's just what I gathered from reading other posts). Talk to ya soon!

    Ahhh OK, I was not sure what NTP was. Got it. I will be going to COT as a 1st Lt then Capt after one year. ALTRN0828, I have been reading the same, COT then NTP. I would imagine that you will be ranked up also.

    Hey RN4Life2,

    So do we automatically make Capt after one year or is it when you have been a nurse for 6yrs? Feb. 2013 I will be a nurse for 6 yrs, so is that when I will become Capt?

    It is based from a calculation of combined time in service and time as a nurse. Unfortunately they only take half the time as a nurse into consideration. I would ask the recruiter for further details and they should be able to give you an idea of what grade you would be going in as.

    I've only been a nurse for a few months. Graduated Dec 2011, got licensed in Idaho Jan 2012, so that's why I fall into the NTP category rather than the FQ. To qualify to apply to the FQ board you need to have been a RN for a minimum of 1 year. That will be my next plan though if I dont get selected this July in the NTP board…and if I have to apply to a FQ board, I'm sure I'll have more questions for you haha!

    I'll be coming in as an 1Lt. I'm sure my recruiter did explain it but I probably forgot with all the information that was given to me.

    Thanks for clarifying the whole NTP qualification LN75.

    I had my interview 2 weeks ago, felt it went very well. Had my physical 2 days ago- passed. I have 5 yrs enlisted as a navy corpsman and 10 yrs nursing experience. Coming in, if selected, as an ER nurse. My recruiter is telling me I won't have an answer until may 25 and if selected will go to COT in July or August... Any feedback, seems like a long time to hear for an answer. And he also told me there was only one selection board a year... Seems like I am reading that people are being selected multiple times a year. Thank u

    *seems like a long time to wait for an answer...*.... However that is the name of the game- hurry up and wait.
