Can anyone tell me exactly what happens after COT? I’m interested in the AF or AF Reserves (currently trying to decide what I’m more interested in). I’ve heard that after cot you just go to a base and start working, but I’ve also heard that there’s another school (in line with tech school) for nurses to go to after cot before going to base that’s significantly longer than cot. Can anyone verify this for me? Thanks!

I think that depends on what your AFSC is. I am not in the Air Force yet, but from what I understand flight nurses have to go to a flight course in Ohio, I believe. I think the same might apply to CCAT. However, in my case as an FNP I'd go to my reserve unit.

Yes it depends on your AFSC. Both Clinical Nurses and Flight Nurses would report straight to their reserve unit after COT but flight nurses have to attend flight school along with SERE training. Scheduling of those courses would depend on availability so you don’t always go straight from COT to those courses. Hope this makes sense! ?
