Hello guys, congrats to all who were selected to the Navy Nurse Corps. To the nurses who are waiting patiently, stay positive! I'm a CVICU RN with only 8 months of experience. I'm also a fulltime online student for my RN-BSN degree, I'll graduate in December 2019. I have been in touch with a recruiter(she's very nice) since February about the process to get in as an ICU Nurse. I'm not a prior service member but I would love to serve as a RN . I was told that I can get started with my medical screening and get through MEPS while I'mwaiting for the FY2020 to come out in October 2019 and graduation. My recruiter won't be able to submit my package until I graduated in December. I'm currently doing my pre-medical screening and working on my credentials and background packages. The recruiter told me that the Navy always has ICU billets but I don't know if that will change because of the healthcare transition. I'll keep you guys updated

Hey Nels, thanks for starting a thread for the 2020ers! I've been talking to my recruiter since last Dec; I'm in acute inpatient psych but apparently there hasn't been any active quotas for psych nurses in the last 4 years so I might be credentialed as a med-surg nurse with psych experience if accepted (I was in CVICU for a very short time before I was like nOoOoOope) which is totes fine, the more skills the better I say. 

My recruiter says end of June we shall be seeing how many active quotes are available for FY2020. 

Are they counting your RN experience prior to your BSN? I hear the other branches only count experience after obtaining a BSN but not sure about the navy!

Hey MasalaC, Thank you for joining. I was told the FY2020 billets will be out in October. I heard the same thing about the RN and BSN experience but my recruiter said don't worry about it, the Navy has so many openings for ICU RN I should be fine. My primary department is CVICU but float to/care for MSICU patients. I passed my TNCC today, I will float to Trauma ICU as well in a few weeks. I'm a new RN and I love ICU expect Peds ICU 😃. I think it's good idea that you're trying to get in as a Med-Surg RN, you can try to get into the ICU again to boost your chance for the Navy. Best of luck to you! Keep us posted.

Yeah I hope once late June comes around he won't be like WHOOPS MEANT OCT lolololol 

Everything goes in turtle pace I fear I won't have any new updates to share until 2025 lol I was supposed to do meps back in Dec after getting confirmation from my recruiter, but once I got there bright and super early, they were like sorry you're not even in the system. I was like excuuurrrssseee me I am SO in the system, my recruiter told me! I dunno what happened but my recruiter apologized and I was like kk, imma go home and go back to sleep then. I'm ready to get meps over with but my recruiter is like I have forever, no need to rush.

UUUHHH I PREFER GETTING THE PAPERWORK DONE AND OVER WITH crying

You got balls of steel loving ICU the way you do. Not everyone is meant for that critical care life so I have no desire to go back, but hecka kudos to you 🙂

I think my recruiter would like me more if I remained a ICU nurse haha oh well, I'm hoping I'll get in regardless.
