I’ve been reading the various posts about Navy Nursing for some time, because I’ve wanted to become a Navy nurse for about 10 years now. Unfortunately, life got in the way, but I’m now 40 and still would love to join. I’ve been an ADN nurse for 11 years and will finish my BSN in March. I’ve read that the Navy wants at least 6 months experience after the BSN. Is that a hard and fast rule or do they sometimes accept someone without it? Also, is it even a thing for 40-something year old to join the Navy? I’m just wondering if I should just accept that it’s probably not going to happen.
Thanks in advance.
