Any US Navy Nurses Out There?

  1. I am getting my pre-reqs completed and should start nursing school for an ADN in Spring 2010, and am looking at all my options. I am considering the Navy due to the opportunities that are available, and tuition repayment. Looks like I can get a chance to practice in many fields, and not just assigned to one. Anyone have any experience being a Naval Nurse? Do you have to have a BSN to be accepted? Thanks

    There's lots of information about navy nursing on the Government and Military forum. Check it out under nursing specialties...

    Go here for info..
    Yup BSN required to commission (except army reserves takes a limited numbers of those with ADN)... but you can enter into a candidate program during your junior or senior year of BSN where you can basically gain a monthly stipend and employment upon graduation . Recommendation is continue moving towards BSN, stay abreast of recruitment requirements and incentives (by browsing the gov/mil service forum), and keeping your options open while doing well in the BSN.

    Must admit, now that I am out of college with my BSN. And having done 5 years already as a Corpsman with the Fleet Marines. I have been thinking about going back into the Navy as a BSN.
