    DaniO'Regan--- Congrats on finishing your WHNP! I just graduated from Nursing school in May and am entering this NTP program through the OB route. I hope to eventually get my WHNP :)

    Owen--- I grew up in Waterville. Worked this summer as a camp nurse. Will be working per diem until January in the Augusta area. bb569 & kc0823 & Kelsie: Where are you guys from? Do you have any information about NTP at Tampa. I know we will be traveling to Tampa General from base (MacDill AFB). Will any of you be bringing a car? I am planning on flying from Maine-->AL for COT and then buying a car once in Tampa. I will be heading to San Antonio after Tampa. ..my name is Sylvia by the way!

    Air Force NTP 2014

    Camo-angel: My package was not nearly as impressive as johnro's.... -3.9 GPA, Graduated in May, passed my boards in June. -Brand new nurse and college graduate, only 22 years old. Have worked as a CNA throughout nursing school. -Spent my final semester of nursing school on a high risk OB/ L&D unit (I applied OB) -Letter of rec from OB nurses and a retired OB AF Nurse I do believe some of my stronger points of my application were my letters of recommendation and I think I interviewed really well with the Chief Nurse.

    Any day now! Patience patience patience! (Easier said, I know...) 35 Medsurg and 5 OB!! Hoping for one of those 5 OB spots considering I've passed up 2 Labor & Delivery job offers since graduating in May. Good luck to all candidates :)

    jerryp--- Great news! I am assuming that since FY '15 begins October 1st, the budget should be close to being figured out at this point? (I know I shouldn't assume). It seems that they might want to have everything finalized within a month of when the deadline is....fingers crossed we hear something by September 1st.

    Air Force NTP 2014

    The FY '15 begins in October....I am assuming that the numbers will be figured out before the FY even starts. I don't think we will be waiting until October!

    ssenak-- You would go to COT in January 2015 because you have not graduated and taken your boards yet. For those of us who have graduated and have passed NCELX, we were told we would leave in October (which makes this delay SUPER stressful)!!
