Hey all I am nursing student, going on to my 2nd semester and interested in joining the AFROTC detachment program in my school. According to my recruiter, all the nursing students who have gone through the program( 4 people) have not made it. He said it usually is too much to meet the AirForce requirements and the nursing requirements. He said one boy couldn't keep his grades up and end up going active duty,one girl couldn't keep her weight down, one girl decided in her 2nd semester nursing wasn't for her, and quit the program and ended up having to pay back all the scholarship
money, one lady couldn;t handle younger people yelling at her when she went to field training and quit the program. He said basically the main reason of all of them was the Afrotc program took up all their time. He said I could be the 1st nursing student to make it. I'm like yeah that sounds good, but I'm scared. You have 3 afrotc classes a week, pt training starting at 6am twice a week, and leadership lab ( practicing drills) once a week for 2 1/2 hours. Does anybody know a nursing major who has made it through this program, or if you yourself have? How did you do it? how did you balance your time? I want to join but I don;t want to get myself in a bind either!
