    I was just selected for Med Surg!! Woohoo!! What did you all put down on your wish list for locations? I learn we learn our posting in a few weeks. I chose Germany, England, and then Texas.
    I put down almost every base I could go to as a new OB nurse. The bases that I wanted to avoid weren't even an option for me so I'll pretty much be happy wherever I go! However, I'm really hoping I go to either JBER or Langley!

    Just got off the phone with my recruiter! I was selected for OB! The calls are coming you guys, don't get discouraged!

    @srbea87 - No not yet. My recuiter said we should at least know where I’ll be going for NTP in about two weeks.

    No, no specifics! But Im just going to put the end of september in my head and if it happens sooner, then cool!

    Hey everyone! I decided to finally come out of the woodwork... I've applied for NTP as well and am currently hurrying up and waiting just like everyone else! Hopefully we hear something on Monday!

    Hopefully that will be true across the states. I'm just going to keep telling myself 2 weeks and if it happens sooner, then all the better haha

    My recruiter texted me earlier yesterday & said that results are to be released today (8/11). Good luck everyone

    @jazi123 - from your recruiter!?

  • Aug 8

    Got a text from my recruiter today (gave me a freaking heart attack) telling me that he should get getting something within the next couple of weeks. Surprise, surprise...

    @Jazi123 - This has got to be the longest two to three months of my life. For those of you who are not already used to the military lifestyle, get ready to hurry up and wait.

    Hi all-I am also applying for the NTP program for FY17. I am applying for medsurg. I am in the national guard right now and have been for two years (as of tomorrow-crazy how fast the time goes!). Good luck to everyone!

    How did your interview go?
    It went really well! The Lt. Col. was very friendly and definitely put me at ease. It felt more like a discussion rather than an interview.

    Are you applying for FQ or NTP? I'm only asking because I would assume that with a MSN you would have over a year of experience and would go FQ. Either way, how is your process going? Is your spouse AD as well (since you're in Okinawa)?

    The thing is if you pick 'clinical nurse' instead of OB, then you'll end up doing inpatient med-surg for several years. You also might not even get the OB identifier at all if you pick 'clinical nurse.' That means you would have to do the OB/L&D fellowship to go back to OB ever again. It might be years before you have the opportunity to do that.

    That's a lot of maybes for my taste. You're better off staying civilian, getting some more experience, getting some certs, and taking some more grad school classes if you don't get it the first time. I don't see too many OB floor nurses running around with an MSN, so I think you'll have a decent shot at OB (not to say it's unheard of but it's not very common).

    I'm thinking about applying for the NTP FY17. I spoke to a recruiter (via email) yesterday and he sent me some forms but that's about as far as I've gotten but since stuff isn't due until July, I guess I have time to figure things out.

    Lasarazen when I found the closest health care professionals recruiter, I had to go through the AF page and select a health care professional recruiter (as opposed to enlisted or college graduate) and I put in my zip code and it gave me the closest location and email address of the recruiter there. 372RCGHPFFlt-Denver@us.af.mil is the email address listed for the Aurora office...which is weird because the email address I got from my closest recruiter is an actual person's email address with their first and last name like most official military email addresses.

    Anyone looking at applying for USAF NTP program for FY17? I am trying to get the process going, but having a hard time getting consistent comms with the recruiter in my region. I was told Nurse Corps recruiting business has been moved from the Goodyear (AZ) station to the Aurora/Denver station. Spoke once a few weeks ago with a SGT Brown in the Aurora/Denver office, but haven't been able to get a hold of him since then via phone - no one answers the phone and there is no option to leave a voicemail. I failed to get his email address the one time I talked to him, so can't contact via email. Anyone have any insight?
