    Kennesaw State University Fall 2015

    I think that one 'C' wont be too bad, especially if they see success in other areas. I, too, have a C in Micro, but mostly A's and a few B's here and there. Did you take the TEAS?

    Kennesaw State University Fall 2015

    Hey y'all. I just applied to KSU and got in, and have sent my application to the nursing program, I am hoping to attend Fall/summer 2016. How long did it take y'all to hear back from the nursing application??? Any other info?

    Valdosta University accelerated program 2015

    Hey y'all! I am very interested in VSU, I am graduating in May 2016, depending on what happens with training dates with the Army I am planing on entering either 2016, or having to wait until the next application cycle . What pre-reqs and grades did you all have to get in?? Online it says about a 2.8 minimum GPA? any info is greatly appreciated.

    EMT - B with nursing school?!

    one1: Did you do summer schooling for EMT -B or at the same time as nursing school?

    EMT - B with nursing school?!

    Thanks for the input, guys!! I think I am going to go for it.. not this summer, but next... I mean the field experience should get me "in the game" or a little taste of the mindset of a field hospital... barely, but at least a taste! Instead of EMT - B (basic), if I can, should I just go for EMT - P (paramedic)... of course time and schedule-pending with nursing school and Army training, or would that be too much considering I am not going to be a paramedic but a nurse?

    EMT - B with nursing school?!

    Hi Y'all! Since you are all so helpful with all of my other questions, I am asking for opinions here.... What do you think about going to summer classes (community college) to get my EMT - B cert. the summer between my freshman and sophomore year of nursing school (University of Kentucky)? Why get the cert? To be able to work on campus as a possible EMT while getting extra medical training. Before anyone says that a nurse's atmosphere and an EMT's are very different, I understand that, and I am going to become an Army nurse (Army ROTC and nursing), talk about a different atmosphere from any other imaginable! Simply wondering if it would be worth my time, in your opinions! Thanks for the input!

    Army Nurse Corps - Airborne school?

    Jeckrn, I am seriously considering ICU, possibly ER... you are saying that there are spots open for these nursing spceialties? What does it do for a nurse to become airborne, what doors does it open for the career?

    Army Nurse Corps - Airborne school?

    Forwaters, Anyone can to go Army Airborne school, it is not MOS dependent. That is the extent of my knowledge regarding nursing and airborne :/ . I am also going to be an Army nurse and looking to attend the Army Airborne school. Does anyone know if many nurses choose this route, and what happens after airborne school? Thanks!, Keegs

    Military Nurse

    Mike, CONGRATS on college, ROTC, and nursing! You're doing everything that I'm getting into, so your answers are extremely helpful! Did you go to LTC? And can you explain a little more about NSTP, I have read about it, but it confuses me because I don't understand if it is training or an internship sort of thing, possibly both? Also, did you get to pick three options of where you wanted to be stationed, or did they just put you where they needed you? Once again, thank you so much for your responses! Keegs

    Mike, I am not in college yet, I'm a senior in high school so I just applied for my 4-year scholarship. Since you are the one to ask, how is it? That's the question I really want to hear, what was your favorite part, least favorite? Have you been deployed , if yes, what is it like? Sorry for all the questions, your answers are EXTREMELY helpful!! Thanks! Keegs

    Military Nurse

    Mike, Thank you so much! Your response was perfect! I'm glad it is Army specific, as I just applied for my Army ROTC Scholarship! Contrary to others' opinions, I am looking most forward to the physical training and hardships of becoming an Army nurse, thank you for the realistic outlook, though. I was wondering, since the Nurse Corps Scholarship for Army ROTC is a 4 year scholarship, would the Army still pay for my schooling past my 4 year degree(bsn) to get my masters? Also, would you recommend getting my four year degree, then finishing in the Army for my masters? I was really considering Emergency nursing, do you know enough about it to answer some questions regarding it? Thank you so much for your response! Keegs

    Day in the life of an army nurse

    I am not quite there yet, just trying to figure out what to do, i am a senior in high school and will attend college in fall of 2011 but as of now i am trying to figure out if i need to apply to medical school (PA) or just the nursing program (BSN) all the while, doing ROTC.

    Day in the life of an army nurse

    Carolinapooh, I want to do PA straight away, but I read in numerous places that you need a lot of experience, so i was thinking that with my BSN i would get the experience and then go to PA. After a lot of responses here, i am second guessing that because it seems like back tracking? The only issue is that i wanted to do the 4 year ROTC scholarship, and I am so confused on how many years/ where to even start to get a PA degree. Just_Cause: It says on the army ipap website that i need to "hold at least a bachelor’s degree and be a graduate of a training program accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant". do you know if the program would be incorporated in my time during my bachelor's degree? I am very lost in finding out what to do and how many years it takes to be a PA. I am not sure what sort of experience i need to attend the PA school or even if i can do that in the Army, outside of my college?

    Thank you so much! I wasn't aware that it was very difficult to switch branches, so thanks for that part! Keegs

    Day in the life of an army nurse

    Thank you all for the help so far, I am going to school for nursing, to achieve my BSN after 4 years in my school's nursing program, while I am enrolled in the nursing program at The University of Tennessee- Knoxville, I will be doing ROTC to become a nurse in the Army. After my BSN, entry into the Army, and some years of experience, I would like to become a physician's assistant, again in the Army. Does anyone know if it is possible to go to school to become a nurse, get a few years of experience with my BSN and then get more training in the Army to become a physician's assistant? Thank you for the help, everyone! Keegs
