  1. thanks.
  2. Hi, I'm planning on joining the military, specifically the Army because they have a "better" loan repayment program. Up to 120k supposedly. I'm not joining anytime soon I'm starting the BSN program in April but I just want to see my options ahead of time. I'm going to attend West Coast University and my tuition is around ~$85k I'm not doing it for the money, but the branch with the better loan repayments... I'm there! *The question* Is for the nurses who got accepted into the Army Nurse Corp... if you don't mind, would you tell me how much did they offer for loan repayment? If youre from another branch, I don't mind your information either :) Thanks.

    How Competitive is the Army Nurse Corps

    Well this is really bad news for me... my plan was to join as soon as I was licensed RN. I would never imagine the military not accepting all applicants.

    How Competitive is the Army Nurse Corps

    That sucks, I would expect the Army to accept all RNs. I wonder why they would only want a certain amount of nurses...

    How Competitive is the Army Nurse Corps

    Hi, I'm a little lost and reading this post is making me worried! When you guys say competitive, are you guys talking about the qualifying for the loan repayment or just joining to be a RN? I thought they would accept all qualifying RNs? Please answer! Thanks!

    Yea, thanks for the quick replys! I already finish my english courses...I just hated writing.

I hope this has not been ask yet,but I was wondering how hard is nursing school compared to the prereqs like A&P/biochem/microbio...Is the level of difficulty the similiar or totally different? ...and I also wanted to know if theres a lot of essay writing involved. Thanks in advance.

    RN's critcal thinking

    Hi I was wondering what are some examples of critical thinking nurses have to deal with on a daily bases? Is there a difference between LVNs and RN critical thinking? I know I cant compare it but I was really bad at critical thinking for my college english class LOL.. and my other question is if a RN with a bachelors would have more work/responsibilty than a RN with an associate. Thanks in advance you guys been a lot of help!
