    Are you referring to the phillippine Nurse Corps?
    If referring to USA military, which branch? If referring to USA no that is not how the board works. Based on competition with other applicants not just a number. I'm not sure what the rest of post meant....

    i'm referring to the philippine nursing corps.... i just heard from one of my friends colleague that they based the ranking on the board rating result, he just said that if you passed the qualification exams and trainings and you have an 80% and above board rating you'll have a chance of being an officer after the trainings, but if you have a board rating of below 80% even you passed the qualification exams and training you'll be just an enlisted personnel... well i really don't know the process of hiring in the philippine nursing corps, but i would like to hear it or know it from somebody who really does know all about it, and i don't want to just believe in rumors. thanks though

    Good morning. I'm already a RN with above 80% board rating, and I'm also a PN officer. Unfortunately, I will not be able to use my profession as a nurse in the PN and I still want to practice the nursing profession in the military. Is it possible to do lateral entry to nurse corps? Can you give me some advice on how to enter nurse corps while I'm in the PN? Thank you.

    Hi girlwarrior! I think the age limit for NC is up to 26 years old. As long as you are physically and mentally fit you can apply for NC.

    i also applied in NC, AFP last july 2011 after my 21st birthday and it's almost 2 years since then, i haven't received any text messages from OTCN for my schedule of examination. I've undergone pre-optical evaluation in AFPMC since im wearing eyeglasses and fortunately passed with grade of 150. but because it's been 2 long years since my application, its now 175 . im worrying if i could still enter NC despite of having 175 grade of eyeglasses
