Air Force Nursing Selection Boards Nov 2016

Did anyone else apply for the November 2016 USAF Nurse boards? I am applying as a fully qualified ER Nurse (46N3J). Today (Dec 2) was the earliest day the board may have released results, but nothing has been released as of now (5pm PST), so I'm guessing we won't hear anything until next week.

Just looking to network with other potential USAF RNs!

Hi! I applied and found out I was selected on the 2nd. Did you find anything out? I'm anxious as to what happens next! My recruiter didn't have much enough as of Friday.

Congrats! That's awesome! Which RN specialty did you apply for? My recruiter sent a group email telling us around 12pm pacific time Dec 2 that the board hadn't released results yet and that he would let us know as soon as he heard something. What time did you hear on Friday?

I applied for the HPSP program (PMHNP) and was hoping for the news on Friday the 2nd as well. I last talked with my recruiter at 1400 CST and there were no results as of that time.

Perhaps it's a little different depending on speciality. I applied for med surg as that's where my experience is. I heard at 1500 MT.

Kr272: Did you get any information other than you were selected? Did they tell you your COT date or your permanent station yet?

Edited by Concomitance

No, only that I was selected. I still have to go to MEPS too.

Wife heard Friday that she was selected for OR Nursing, any idea if you get to choose your COT dates? If anyone has asked their recruiter about that type of flexibility would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks.

No you don't get to select COT. They assign you a date.

Here are the class dates:

Congrats to all selected! I spoke to my recruiter today and he said there hasn't been any "official release or update in the system." Any idea if the selections posted on this forum are "unofficial" or is my recruiter just uninformed? Concomitance- did you hear anything yet? Anxiously following this post and ....waiting for the call!

Unfortunately, as with most things of this nature, I have to put together an educated based on the varied information I have. As I understand it, there are different boards for each specialty (medsurg/er/ob/surgery/HPSP/critical care) but they meet at the same time. Whether the same people sit on them or not, I have no idea. I think as results come out from each board, they are sent to recruiters that have candidates in them. So if your recruiter only has candidates for boards that haven't been released yet, he won't have information (as there is none). I know my recruiter told me a while ago that boards have been delayed in the past for various reasons, so results came late, which invariably set a lot of COT dates back a couple months. And no, I haven't heard anything yet . . . I will post as soon as I hear!!!

I applied for the HPSP. My recruiter sent me a message on Friday saying that things were delayed and that results would be out today. I've been on edge all day but it's getting later and later and I'm starting to worry! I'll be keeping an eye out on this thread!

Hey everyone! I found an old thread on AllNurses for this same process from last year! Some helpful information is on there, and also it makes me feel better to see other nurses who were anxiously waiting results just like we are now! Also, one of the nurses in the thread is a friend of mine who helped mentor my application!

I applied for the Critical care position and was selected on 12/02. Anyone heard anything on how to get ready for COT? I just got my acceptance letter today, so that is pretty exciting.

St.BaptistRN Congrats!!! That's awesome!!! I really hope to hear soon (hopefully a yes). As for getting ready for COT, my USAF friend wrote a really great blog about the whole process start to finish that goes into day by day detail of what happens at COT.

Check it out! I've found it really helpful. She's also a great resource with any questions; I message her frequently about AF stuff and she always gives me advice.
