An Army recruiter contacted me, asking me if I wanted to join the army as an NP, I told him that my NP school would not start until this August, and I would not be graduating in about 3 years, and he also wanted me to have 1 year NP experience. Anyways, then he said ”You have BSN, right? you can join the Army Reserve, and serve 1 weekend every month, and you can get tuition assistance as well when you are in NP school at the same time." I have paid off my BSN loans, haven't borrowed any for NP school yet, I try not to.
My questions are, 1) how true is that? If that's true, I could just get student loan for NP without worries?
2) If I told my school now that I just have joined the Army Reserve, would it affect my schooling? I mean schedule wise, or some other aspects I am not aware of, I don't want to fail NP school.
Anyone can help answering my questions? Thank you.
