Quote from MCHnurse
Just a bit of venting so that I can release some stress...
My application went before the board the first Wednesday of December. I still have not heard anything and I'm completely stressed! My brother-in-law told me that the military pretty much shuts down after December 1st until after the New Year. This being the case, I *still* feel worried that I haven't heard anything. Any words of wisdom for a worried hopeful Navy nurse?
Happy New Year!!!!!
It is stressful but, try to be patient.
My packet was initially before two boards, (October and November) and not picked up until the December Boards.
I know of two people who were picked up by the December boards and we pretty much both knew before Christmas.
One good thing though is that if you have not heard, that means it is likely that you were not rejected!
When I was passed over I didn't find out for over three weeks, then we resubmitted and it was picked up.
The first time I sent it in I was rejected, "immediately" due to needing to fix my application.
The results from the December Board are out already. I do not know why your recruiter hasn't been in touch with you. However, I would not worry just yet, if you weren't picked up, there is always, "re-packaging!"
If I wasn't picked up this time around I had already spoke with an Air Force recruiter who said the AF would likely take me.
Feel free to pm me, I may have some more information for you regarding the December Board.
