You are reading page 4 of Nurse Candidate Program and DUINS (Navy). If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

My recruiter told me I will likely get a decision sometime October or November. If accepted into the two year program I would just swear in ASAP (Probably December or January) and start receiving the stipend then. My nursing program started August 2019 and runs until May 2021. 

I was also told you can only apply for one program - either/or. If you get rejected then you are simply rejected, even if there are 1 year spots open.

See, I don’t think any recruiters are ever on the same page! Who knows which are right. I’m at a 4 year school but don’t think that should matter. He said we swear in in January and receive the signing bonus then but no monthly stipend till May so would technically be one year. And he told me you apply and they tell you one or two year by where they want you. Who knows which is true. 

 

Yeah the the approximate date to find out is nov 1. Board meets mid/late October. Last year they found out a day or to before or on Nov 1. The year before they didn’t find out till after thanksgiving. I’m hoping we get the earlier! I know not everyone is notified the same day so one of us may no before another. Not sure why it works like that.

Honestly forget the money. I just want a guaranteed commission and the OCUI2 status haha. The money is just icing on the cake!

Just saw your personal statement. Yours destroyed mine! Mine was literally just a paragraph because my guy told me to keep it brief. Now you have me scared! My statement is terrible next to that

I haven’t either! And my professors and parents keep asking and it’s killing me. In the past the earliest I’ve ever heard of someone finding out is the 28th! So I’m hoping for Monday!
