    Application is due sometime in June usually. You should hear back around September-October. I got notification in September but I know others who weren't notified until October. Good Luck

    Hello, I was accepted for the start date in summer 2012 for the USAGPAN program as a civilian. I am waiting for the acceptance letter in the mail which will come in a couple of weeks. Will this letter detail the next steps? Is anyone a civilian too and knows what the next step is? I'm assuming getting a NEU letter is next...? Please help, nervous and excited!

    Hi everyone!
    I am accepted to USAGPAN for 2011 - civilian direct accession route (accepted at NEU) - I am a little nervous and appreciate all of the comments and advice you current/past students share.

    Looking forward to hearing from some more 2011 people!
    Hello HippieChicc,

    I am also a civilian who just received the infamous email stating I have been accepted to the USAGPAN program for 2012. I'm assuming NEU acceptance is the next step? Can you please educate me on the process you went through! The more detailed the merrier! Thank you so much for your time! I am nervous and excited! How is everything going?

    Hello everyone. I am a VA employee, currently work in the SICU. I was accepted for the NEU/USAGPAN class to start June 2012. I am waiting for the offical letter but I did recieve the email confirming my acceptance. I am waiting for the VA selection committee to make final selections. I was told that would be this month, anybody know anything about the VA selection process.

    VA USAGPAN letters have been sent out via the Postal Service. They take 4 people out of 16 slots (I think). Just fyi. Good luck everyone.

    Hi Sunshineonleith,

    I am currently in the 2011 USAGPAN program at Ft. Sam. You will likely need to frequently check up with your army health care recruiter to make sure the ball gets rolling. It was quite a headache, but finally went thru for me... got orders last minute, like just a few weeks before I needed to report. You'll get yours, too, but just be prepared for a last minute everything

    That being said, congratulations to you! It is a very challenging program and I truly love it. Take all the time you can now to enjoy your family... don't stress about the program in advance, you can and will succeed. I also think you will be the first class to receive a doctorate.

    Hi,

    I have read all the post about current and prospective CRNA's and I am truly inspired! I have a question that has not been answered throughly though.. ( maybe I missed it. lol) How long is the military commitment if you are planing on going through the USAGPAN program? I believe it was stated that it is 4.5 years or something, but is that the "total" time in the military or is that seperate from the 4 years you would initially have to do? I am currently a nursing student finishing my BSN, and I will have a job working in an ICU unit upon graduation. For example, If I enter the USAGPAN prgram in June 2012, ( hypothetically speaking) when will I be finished with my commitment to the military? I am 33, so I am looking ahead how old I will be once I am done! lol Thanks for your input!

    From DODI 6000.13 and AR 351-3




    Participants of long-term graduate (leading to a master’s or doctoral degree) education and training in a military or civilian institution shall incur an ADO of three times the length of the education or training for the first year, or portion thereof, unless such degree is incidental to the completion of an established residency or fellowship program; i.e., aerospace medicine. Additional ADOs for participation in excess of one year shall be one-half year for each half year, or portion thereof.

    I believe the program is 2 years so your military commitment would be 6 years and I am not sure if that includes the 2 years of schooling. If it doesn't then your commitment would end June 2020. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    The Army school is going to three years with the start of their DNP program this summer. The time commitment is now 4.5 yrs for 2.5 yrs of school. The time commitment will go up to 5 yrs with the 3 yrs of school. That means if you were a direct entry applicant you would goto the Army's OBC then directly to school, and then you goto school for 3yr plus OBC and 5 yr payback. You are looking at 8yrs + or - with OBC between school and payback.
