Hello! Good day!
Im from the Philippines. 21 yo. I just graduated last May 2015 in University of Santo Tomas. I just passed my NCLEX last Nov 2016. Im planning to move to Nevada and work as a nurse this March 2017. But im also considering applying to the us navy as a nurse, too. In addition to that, I have second thoughts about my application in the Navy Nurse Corps. There are many questions that run thru my mind. Hope you can assist me with these:
1. Ive read that one of the requirements is that I should have graduated from a school accredited by CCNE or NLNC? As ive mentioned, I graduated from one of the universities here in the Philippines. Does it mean that Im not eligible to enter the navy nurse corps? Or are there any options? Or are there any universities here in the Philippines accredited by the two agencies?
2. I have a military id. I got this because my father is a retired us navy, deputy comptroller. Can I use this on my application or is this an edge for me in entering the navy?
3. For example I am able to enter the navy nurse corps, what does the training seem like? For example, handling of guns, swimming in deep sea waters (lol), and etc? Or is it medically-related only?
4. What if I apply online, pass all my documents, and they find out that im eligible to enter, what is the first step im tasked to do? Because Im still here in the philippines. Do I need to immediately go in the US?
Thanks for answering! More power!
