Hi, 

I currently an BSN-RN and just went to the local army recruiters office. The recruiter is telling me to take the asvab test first and we'll go from there. I thought I can join the army as an officer and work as an RN. Any insights? thanks!

You need to talk to a healthcare recruiter, there is usually only one per major city.  You can google Army healthcare recruiter to locate the one that is closest to you and then contact them. You do not need to take the ASVAB to join as a nurse corps officer.  That is for enlisted only, you are likely talking to a regular enlisted recruiter.

Correct.......OP You need to see a healthcare recruiter. Same thing happened to me. I have my BSN and he asked me if I would consider being a CNA.....they are doing their job but leave :D
