Hello everyone! I'm in need of assistance!
I am looking into becoming a Navy Nurse but I have not gone to school yet. I keep reading over and over in everyone elses' posts to go to school FIRST! join as an officer later. Do NOT go to an enlistment recruiter, instead go to an Officer Recruiter. While all this sounds fine and dandy, at my current full time job I could not afford to pay for schooling nor would I have the time to go to class. I've been looking into the NROTC program to send me through school while I also have training and then a job after I graduate. Can I do this and become an officer? I am going to speak with a recruitment officer tommorow to find out more, but I must say I am a little nervous. My roommate is in the Navy and is on his way to Iraq, he says DON'T ACCEPT FIRST OFFERS! DONT SIGN ANYTHING! I'll do my best, it all sounds so wonderful though! I just want to be able to help people as soon as possible!!!
Any information would be greatly appreciated so please get back with me
