  1. Airforce or Navy nurse?

    Currently serving as a reservist so I cannot speak on behalf of AD. However, AF really looks after your well being and considers your family. Our deployments are shorter versus other branches. As nurses, we all do the same job and often wor...
  2. Reserves

    https://www.airforce.com/find-a-recruiter Use this website to find them. Make sure you search for healthcare professions recruiter because enlisted will likely not help. However, I do know of one but not sure if he covers the Carolinas. I'll PM you h...
  3. Too old?

    For the Air Force Reserve, I believe it's somewhere between 40-45 but I am not 100% sure. Contact either a Guard or Reserve Health Professions Recruiter. The recruiters you see around your city are likely not officer/healthcare recruiters and may lea...
  4. Air Force Nurse Boards October 2019

    I did my oath at the beginning of November and yes, going Reserve. I have my first UTA drill this coming weekend. I will post any info to keep this thread going.
  5. Flight Nursing in Air Force Reserves

    In one word, patience. It took me 2 years to finally get in for the Reserve. It seems a bit discouraging but hang on if it's what you really want. It took me 4 months to get to MEPS, 3-4 months after that for flight physical because I too did not mee...
  6. Air Force Nurse Boards October 2019

    Reserve. Thanks! That wasn't mentioned to me but cool! I was told my paperwork would be sent to the Reserve personnel and from there orders for OTS.
  7. Air Force Nurse Boards October 2019

    Yes I was. I’ve been trying since 2017 and finally got it.
  8. Air Force Nurse Boards October 2019

    Congrats to everyone! I'm selected as a clinical nurse and already got my oath completed. Now waiting for orders. Not sure when that's going to happen.
  9. Air Force Nurse Boards October 2019

    Guys, I found out last week that my package is "gtg" as per my recruiter. This Saturday (11/2) I am doing my oath at my Reserve base as a clinical nurse. I am assuming they have already selected the applicants but have yet to notify them? I started t...
  10. Airforce Reserves Nursing

    I think that depends on what your AFSC is. I am not in the Air Force yet, but from what I understand flight nurses have to go to a flight course in Ohio, I believe. I think the same might apply to CCAT. However, in my case as an FNP I'd go to my rese...
  11. Any regrets becoming a NP?

    Wow. You nailed it, unfortunately. I don't see much value in my work anymore. Like you said, do more and shut up. I'd go back to ER as an RN but I don't know anymore. I too have had depressed moods ever since I started working as an NP. Some days ar...
  12. FY2020 Army Nurse Corps

    That’s exactly what I read too! Navy recruiter didn’t go much into the detail about that and I haven’t heard from him in over 3 months. Currently waiting to hear about my CV approval, do you know anything about that? Is that part of selection?
  13. Any regrets becoming a NP?

    I have some regrets: 1. I did not work out my math and could have been earning a bit more as an ER RN. 2. I did not think it thoroughly when it came to work/life balance. 3. I did not consider the over saturation of the NP job market. 4. I had zero ...
  14. FY2020 Army Nurse Corps

    For me they were required as an FNP. For Public Nurse I am not sure if you are required however it’s never a bad idea to get them! “3-5 Letters of Recommendation. Two letters must come from Nurse Direct line supervisors. The supervisor needs to stat...
  15. FY2020 Army Nurse Corps

    Did MEPS last year since I was trying to process with Navy so I don't have to do it again. It's valid for 2 years. As of Friday I have completely finished my package with LORs, statement of motivation, and that online background questionnaire.
