This would obviously have to be a total opinion piece, but I know there are many nurses on this forum that have already been through the process, and have read stories of other nurses. What do you think my chances are of getting selected for active duty army, this november5th when the boards commence.
Let's say all other things are good, i.e. application, physical, background, education req.
I graduated Nursing school
in August 2008 with an ASN gpa 3.9, was liscenced in october 2008, and took a position with a Home healthcare position that same month. I worked pediatric home health care as well as adult.
I then took a position with a major hospital in my area in december 2009. I started charge nursing in july of 2011, and became the assistant nurse manager of my unit in October of 2011, and I have held this position ever since.
I am CMSRN certified still good for 5 more years.
I can get glowing LoR's from all previous supervisors.
I continued school and have one more class for my BSN, I will graduate with a 3.8. I am 27 meet height and weight standards. can pass a PT test today(husband is prior service and has been whipping me into shape).
I have no criminal record, credit rating is above 700 with all three bureaus, and mecially I am fine both physically and mentally.
I know it isnt all the information considered but, I am just trying to put my mind at ease just a little. I know this board is so very competitive. So Hopefully someone out there with experience with these boards can help me out, or at least let me know where they think I stand.

Not at 56 years old. In my country retirement age is 65. How about yours.
I also find I prefer to work around nurses my own age, experience and skill level.
