Hi , I need some advice.

I have I’m stuck on deciding an option and need some advice. So my story is I graduated bsn and passed NCLEX. I also commissioned as an army nurse. I been given two options for BOLC date, either March or July bolc.  I’m unsure which to choose, reason being I been told ACFT will be record test for bolc. (Note I never even taken this test) I am struggling at some of the events. I do workout 5x a week and determined to get better but if I pick March bolc idk if I’ll be good before arriving. That why I’m considering July be best to go but been advised if I go in July it be it might be harder to keep my nursing skill up to date mostly since I’m a new nurse ,I don’t want that to happen either. Any advice would help.

Yes, you must pass the ACFT to graduate from BOLC. New grads who commission are expected to arrive at BOLC and be able to pass before going to their units. As a new nurse, you will go through the Army new grad orientation anyway (clinical nurse transition program), so I wouldn't worry about your skills at this point. Best of luck!
