Hi everyone! I've decided to get more information about the NCP with the Navy. I am going to be contacting the recruiter tomorrow to schedule an appointment! The officer recruiting station is about 4 hours away so it will be sometime later this month before I will be able to make it up there.
I just wanted to get everyone's comments and opinions on a few things before I head up there:
1. What are some questions that I should remember to ask the recruiter while I'm there? Will the recruiter have a list of questions that I'm supposed to answer as well? What should I wear? (I've seen some people say to dress like going to an interview but I'm not sure what is appropriate.)
2. What is your opinion on the NCP versus direct commission once I graduate? Should I wait til graduation to pursue my dream?
3. Is the program family friendly? I am married to a former Marine so I know a lot about military life in the USMC. However, is the medical aspect of the Navy friendly towards families?
4. Any advice or comments that you have about the Navy nursing profession in general?
I know that is a lot of questions, but I'm very excited. Thanks for any and all comments you have! I appreciate them
