I hope you can help to enlightened my mind. To give you a little background, I am an immigrant and a greencard holder, means I am not an american citizen yet. It has always been my dream since I was kid to join the US army. I am a registered nurse here in USA and currently working as a registered nurse in a hospital.
As of the moment, I am now enlisted and ready to be shipped to basic training on March 11, 2019. However, my current MOS is 88M or transportation. My recruiter told me that she will do everything to change my MOS to a nurse officer once I am done with the basic training and AIT. So she told me that our goal is for me to be sent to the camp and work my way to become a nurse once I am done with all of those and when the board starts accepting this August. I am completing my forms already for army nurse. But I am worried about it. What if she can't help me? What will happen to me? Will I have to finish my MOS contract before I can do Nursing?
I love serving in the US army and so is nursing if I can do these both at the same time I will definitely stay in the military for the rest of my life.. Another concern is my pay. As of the moment I am paying too many bills and it seems like 88M pay would not suffice to my needs. I am the bread winner of the family.
I feel like I am gambling and putting my entire faith on her.
So do you think there is always a chance for me to change my MOS? I am in active duty with contract of 3 years.
Hoping for your response fellow nurses! And thank you in advance.
Suggestion pls. I got 3 more days
