    RN to Army Medic or LPN

    I’m trying to go active duty. I flirted with the idea of the reserve, but the experience requirement is the same.

    RN to Army Medic or LPN

    Hello everyone! I am seeking guidance on my odd predicament I am in trying to rejoin the U.S. Army. In 2015 I got out of active duty (enlisted) and signed a contract with the reserve to keep my “foot in the door” while I completed my BSN degree. In December of last year (2018) I graduated and started working at a local hospital to maintain my skills and to pay rent while simultaneously working with an AMEDD recruiter to put together a 66H packet for the FY2020 board in October 2019. Unfortunately, a new mission just came out and RNs with under two years of experience are not being considered anymore. Since this new mission was posted, and my reserve contract ended in March, I am considering rejoining active duty as a 68W (Medic) or 68C (LPN) under the Army Civilian Acquired Skills Program (ACASP). If I did this, would there be an in-service route to transition to the Nurse Corps since I already have an RN license? What are your thoughts on this? Side Note: I know most people will say to wait the two years or to rejoin the reserve and work as an RN until I am eligible to direct commission. However, my family and I planned to return to active duty once my civilian education was completed. I also do not want a longer break from active federal service than what I already have. Thank you

    FY2020 Army Nurse Corps

    Hello! My name is Dustin and I thought it would be a good idea to create a topic for those who are applying for the FY2020 Army Nurse board! A little about me; I am prior service Army enlisted with four years on active duty as a 19D (Cavalry Scout) and four years in the reserve as a 68W (Combat Medic). Recently, in December of last year I graduated with my BSN from a highly reputable school in Texas. In January of this year I started my new job in a Cardiothoracic and Transplant ICU, but in the process of applying to the 66H (Med-Surge Nurse) position with the Army. Per my recruiter, this is essentially the standard for nurses who have less than two years of RN experience and who will attend the Army’s Nurse Residency Program. I’m hoping that my year of ICU experience and my CCRN certification at the time right before leaving for training will be an advantage to changing over to the Critical Care Nurse AOC (66S) as soon as I can. If it wasn’t for my yearning to return to the Army and wear the uniform again, I would just wait until I have over two years of civilian experience and apply to the 66S position. My desire to continue to serve is stronger than my AOC, 200%! Please, use this to connect with others and share your experience! I look forward in embarking on this journey and hearing from others.

    Hey! How is your experience with Vandy? Is the experience worth the lower pay?

    I don't believe so. At least, I haven't heard or read anything about a bonus.

    Does anyone happen to know what color scrubs nurses wear at Vandy? Or, does it depend on the unit?
