  1. ANCP and TUITION

    I used the ancp. I applied going into nursing school. Received 5000 at the begininng of the fall semester, 1000 a month even during the summer bc i went full time, then received another 5000 at the beginning of the fall semester of my last year. S...
  2. US ARMY Commissioning

    i think you need to give more information. Like what? Fail a PT test, not show up to work? Most things fall under the UCMJ and all the rest usually falls under AR's, Commanders policies, etc. Unless your going in a different direction with this q...
  3. Stories from Recent return from being deployed

    not really sure what your asking? an anc officer that is profis will deploy for 6 months but if you're organic to the unit you go for the year. enlisted go for the year. people all experience things differently so yes a new nurse of say 1 year (wh...
  4. Recruiters not telling us the truth

    dont be so hard on the allnurses family (or recruiter). the military is rapidly changing. i have talked to someone who went to some class only a few weeks prior to me going and by the time i got there they changed everything. not anyones fault. y...
  5. undecided military branch

    when i was enlisted (army) i had the opportunity to work with all services. yes there are pro's/con's to each, but my pro's might be your con's. when i wanted to come back in as a nurse i knew there was no choice to make bc for me it's army all the...
  6. Becoming a military nurse

    i agree, army all the way. that being said people join for so many different reasons and each branch has its own pull. its not really something that can be answered by others. for example, my husband wanted to join the airforce. they could not giv...
  7. i dont disagree. most are capt or even maj when accepted into a masters program thru the army although i have known 1LT. same with specialty course. it says you can go at 1 yr of service and yet its more like 2-3. there is always a norm and then ...
  8. not really true regarding the crna. they were asking people at my oblc class if they were interested to start getting their packet together bc they are waiving requirements bc they need the people. its all needs of the army and the army will waive ...
  9. How quickly were U required to take the NCLEX once U graduated from school i cant remember, seems like 60 or 90 days but i waited less than 30 which is why i cant remember. the recruiter can give you the exact numbers. how much of the $10,000 bonus...
  10. i can try to answer your questions. i hope this helps. What should I expect upon acceptance? graduate, take nclex, get a class date for oblc and the go to your first assignment. If I get my top choice of assignment, what is the likelihood of reassi...
  11. Recruiter Clarification regarding "specialties"

    enlisted and officer side dont always work the same way. for an enlisted soldier, unless its in your contract dont expect to get it. i know for army, i have never met a nurse (officer side) who did not have the opportunity to go to a specialty cour...
  12. Sick and Tired of Waiting!!

    Have you talked to branch? sorry you feel that way. i was prior service, came back in with 4 kids and a husband who is active duty in another branch. my assignment didnt go so well, our two branchs didnt work so well together, but I still felt lik...
  13. I GOT THE CALL !!! I'M in the ARMY.. I'M IN THE ARMY

    its a tradition to give the first person that salutes you a silver dollar. the first one you pay for, the rest you earn.
  14. Recruiter Clarification regarding "specialties"

    i dont know about air force but in the army, once you have been in for about a year, you can request to go to a specialty school. you can normally get a school around the 1.5-2 yr mark (or tdy en route to next duty station so closer to 3). at least...
  15. I GOT THE CALL !!! I'M in the ARMY.. I'M IN THE ARMY

    Congrats. Its always nice to see someone who is excited about serving in the Army. I think its the best job in the world. Good luck.
  16. Sick and Tired of Waiting!!

    i graduated in may, took the nclex in june and went to the first oblc class in aug. the class date was not officially assigned until i passed the nclex. they just dont do that bc they have to many people that dont pass the first time. i dont think...
  17. What does it look like?

    Well being in the Army, you are taking the chance that at some point in time you could be put in a situation that you would have to defend yourself or your patients. You have to shoot a weapon. As an army nurse i feel more like a nurse than i do a ...
  18. Online Banking/cell phones etc...in Iraq?

    when i came on direct commission, you had to buy your own uniforms. as an officer you get a one time clothing allowance of like 600. its not going to buy everything you need but it helps. most places you pay a monthly fee if you want internet acc...
  19. Uniform for commissioning to Regular Army

    well im active duty, and i wore acu's. I came in as a direct commission. most of the people i know were rotc and they had no choice as it was done at their schools so class A's or dress blues. I know several people who have done it in civilian clo...
  20. pay in ks for a new grad/young nurse

    I am active duty army, so dont really get paid hourly wages. People ask me a lot about pay for nurses here in ks but dont really know what to tell them. Seems like they (nursing school) mentioned something like 20/hr for new grads at KU med center ...
  21. Indecisive: Army Nurse Corps

    i love the army so im probably not the best to give you a list of the pro's and con's, i tend to see just the pro's. i was enlisted and got out to go back to school and then came back in as a nurse. i have to say that bc of my prior service experie...
  22. Commissioning

    Congrats. I had the pleasure of having my husband put my rank on me and have him be the first to salute me at my commissioning and i also had the pleasure of re-enlisting him. I feel a great pride to serve and love knowing that you serve along side...

  24. need info please! did you use caveduers in ns?

    i have mixed feelings about washburn. i never even thought about an associates because getting a bachelors degree was a dream of mine. when me and my husband moved to kansas i wanted to finish my degree and finally knew just what i wanted to do (it...
  25. need info please! did you use caveduers in ns?

    no nursing program at ksu (they do have a pre-nursing program though). i live by fort riley, did my first two years of college at k-state and then transfered to washburn in topeka. saved me the drive for two years. sorry for any confusion.
