    Wow 25?!?! Last I talked to my recruiter she told me she was only puttin in like 6-7 and a few of them weren't "for sure" yet cuz she was still waitin on paperwork or results of their physicals or other stuff. Man I hope all the recruiters aren't puttin in that many. Mine says she covers 3-4 states too. Hmmmm...makes you wonder who the other 24 are huh? Why havent they found this sweet forum and joined up like us so we can know who else were up against lol?!?!

    I'm hoping there was some sort of mix up because that is quite a few. I'm guessing next to none are from Utah because in my BSN program I'm the only one and there are only two other BSN programs that I know of in the state. I'm thinking we're the ones that have found the sweet forum because we are the most interested and qualified!!! That's how I'm looking at it at least.

    25 does seem like a lot! But I guess it is possible. Is there a fully qualified board in July as well? Just thinking that maybe your recruiter was talking about 25 NTP/fully qualified applicants all together. There are only two or three BSN programs in my state as well, and I'm the only one I know of that is applying out of a couple hundred students in my BSN program. I haven't talked to my recruiter in a while, but last time I did he only mentioned 3 or 4 other applicants for NTP, one of which might have been DQ'd at meps. Lol, I would like to think that we're the ones who found this forum because we are the most interested and qualified!!! That's a very good way to look at it, and probably actually has some truth to it!

    Awesome UCAFblue and SLC2012 i think the exact same thing!!! I figure the really interested and serious applicants will be out there searching for any info they can get, and this forum is like the first 10 hits that come up on a google search. So yeah I'm with you guys...hopefully the fact that we've found our way to this forum means were more interested and serious than the other applicants.

    So, fellow serious applicants, how is everyone going with the process? Aren't our packets due in June? I had my interview a week ago, and from what I have been told by my recruiter, that is really the last thing we have to do. What about everyone else?

    CVA311, it's going pretty good - I'm working on getting my interview scheduled, and like you said that is really the last part I have to do. Yes, our packets are due in June - I can't remember the exact date but I think it's around the 19th. I'm definitely ready to have the interview done because it seems like the most difficult part of the process. Other than that, I'm starting to get a little nervous about getting selected because it seems like there are a lot of applicants for not very mant spots.

    How did your interview go?

    I'm really nervous too, but I think that's natural . My interview went super well, thanks! It could only have gone better if my recruiter had confirmed the time with the Colonel I interviewed with. He wasn't expecting me, but it still went amazing. My advice would be to make sure that your recruiter confirms your interview time, and make sure that he/she sends your resume over. (the Colonel didn't have one, and I am still thankful I brought one). It couldn't hurt to bring your resume, just in case. He said he usually asks a lot of questions about the Air Force values and mission, but since my husband is enlisted he said he didn't need to ask. So try to memorize the values and such. The Air Force website has them all posted with explanations, and I found it helpful.

    I hope you get it scheduled soon and that It goes really well for you!! Best of Luck!!

    Yeah, I'm almost done. My recruiter told me today that we have a few more papers to sign but that's it. Also, I asked her if she knows how many applicants for sure she will be submitting to the board...she said 7 if all goes well. I don't know much about the other 6 other than half of them still haven't been interviewed. Anyway...still plenty of time for them. Man I hate waiting

    Is anyone applying for the Health Professions Loan Repayment Program? I just got the application and it says that in order to be eligible we have to be selected by Aug 1st. So either they will make the selection decision before August 1st, or none of us will be eligible for the HPLRP?

    I have my interview Monday and then that is the last big thing. Then a few more papers to sign I would imagine. Also, signed up for the NCLEX in a couple weeks so that is exciting and it will be nice to have that finished. I'm not applying for the HPLRP, I barely made it w/o taking any loans out and skimmed by. I echo the statements of of not enjoying waiting. I need to find a temporary RN gig to help fill some time or go on a major vacation.
