This reply wasn't for the poster, it is more for people like me that are doing research and come across these postings. I realize that this thread was started almost a year ago.
No that is not true. If you are in a graduate program, the air force will have you drill as an officer in the reserves because you already have your bachelor's degree.
"Health Professions Scholarship Program
The Air Force offers scholarships for Healthcare professionals to include: one-and two-year for Biomedical Science Corps specialties (Pharmacists, Optometrists, Clinical Psychologists, and Public Health Officers), two- and three-year for Nurse Corps specialties, and three- and four-year for Medical Corps and Dental Corps. This scholarship covers all tuition and required fees, including textbooks, small equipment items and supplies needed for study. You will also receive a monthly allowance of approximately $1,992 for living expenses. While on scholarship you will spend 45 days on active duty in the Air Force, and once you graduate you will serve active duty (one year for each year of scholarship, with a minimum of three years)."
That was taken directly from their web site. You can look it up if you would like to.

It is only if you are in a master's field. You can talk to a recruiter as well.
The Air Force has scholarships for graduate nurses that pay for your graduate school. It involves a minimum commitment of 3 years, but other than that it is a year for year deal. You give them a year, they get a year. It is all on their website, I found it looking for a way to pay for my BSN.
