YES!!!! I am also a RN going to BOLC July 5th. which is fast approaching. i am so glad to finally see someone else for this class. i have read many post and blogs about other people who have went. where is your first duty station? They are sending me to Fort Leavenworth, kansas. sounds interesting but defitetly would not have been my first choice. i am getting nervous also. i have lost a lot of weight and i have doing PT on a regular basis. I am pretty worried about the weather but hopefully coming from Florida i am somewhat accomstummed to the heat. i am also very excited because this has been a 2 year process trying to get in and now it is finally happening. well Icould ramble on but i won't and im at work so i need to go. this is my last night so i can take the last month to get everything squared away with house and packing. its great to hear someone else is nervous too.
I just wanted to congratulate anyone who has received word from the board and is being commissioned. I talked to my Recruiter who called me from leave and said that the nursing board was so swamped they could only get through the ER and ICU specialties. I am an operating room nurse so he said they are pushing these specialties back a month. to sometime in Nov. what was positive he said was that I have a competitive packet and he will be getting be in! so i was wondering if anyone else has heard similar news?
That is exactly how I feel that why didn't they already find that error in the qc process? i was told that the multiple qc were done from nov 2-16 and my recruiter said it was being reviewed today. i just really would not appreciate it if I didn't get selected because of office errors. it is so out of my control that is what's killing me. i am trying to let it go and put it in God's hands, I strongly believe I have a purpose here and what ever happens is meant to be. where are u? r u waiting for your reults also?
It is somewhat comforting to know that everyone else is on pins and needles to and the recruitors are not telling us all bits and pieces. my packet is in Kentucky for the board. I got a e-mail and call today from my recruiter that apparantly my physical was missing my eye exam and they wanted a copy. he said they are looking at my packet right now. well good luck to all! my prayers are for everybody. I am an OR nurse and I would love to go to landtuhl Germany. till we hear... hopefully before thanksgiving so we can really celebrate.
atleast you are getting help from your recruiter. my recruiter just said it is very competetive now because of the economy and i was told for the first time ever the board is only meeting once a year now which the board is meeting right now from nov 16-19 in kentucky. I am prior enlisted with 6 yrs active duty. I am operating room nurse with 8 yrs experience and I am a charge nurse. with all my qualifications i am still very unsure if i will get commissioned. i always wanted to go back in the miliatary as an officer and retire. I never thought it would be this hard because of how easy it was back in the 90's. life and the economy make this hard, i would think it would there till would be few nurses who are willing to get deployed and leave their families during this wartime. the anticipation is killing me. my recruiter said they will post results either next week or right after Thanksgiving.
