I dont know anything about this board in particular, but I did just start actually nursing for the USAF. It's a long, tough process that often results in illness, fights with your spouse, late nights and weeks without pay. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. Next to marrying my wife it's the best decision I've ever made. If you have specific questions beyond the board, let me know. Good luck!

I submitted my application to the Nov 2011 boards and was not picked for truly unknown reasons (everyone else's app had something written on it but mine). How common is it to be picked on your second application, or once you are not picked does it get that much harder? I am currently in for the April boards (I think, but can't seem to reach my recruiter) and do you know how many ER positions are looking to be filled? I am a trauma nurse specialist and have 7yrs of nursing experience (I will complete my BSN in July).

I dont know the specifics of the openings for these boards, since they change each time. However, I was overlooked 6 times and picked up on board #7. Im an ICU nurse from a busy chicago trauma center. Sometimes they just dont have the need right then and there. You're in fine shape until they actually tell you, "no, we dont want you". I would imagine the BSN has something to do with it. If you were selected 11/11, it's very feasible that you would've left for COT before you graduate, which they would not allow. Not sure, but that's my $.2
