Hello,I am a current nursing student in the 4th semester (5 more to go!) of a BSN program. I have been looking into military nursing lately for many reasons (great opportunities, leadership training, money) and I have met with a medical recruiter and an ROTC director. I have learned a lot about the process so far but I feel like each person I talk to who is in the military wants me to follow a certain path, rather than educating me on all my opportunities, and then letting me pick the best route for me. For example, when I met with the ROTC director, he only discussed the ROTC route and made it seem like all other options were impossible. So my question for you all: is the HPLRP still available to nursing students, and how I go about going this route? I am not against doing ROTC, but whatever path I choose I want to have a guarantee that the Army (or navy or air force) will help me in paying back my loans before I commit to anything. The ROTC director said I could possibly qualify for a loan for the last 2 years of my program, but I already have about 50k in loans (from another degree) that I am worried about paying off. If the HPLRP is not available, are there any other routes? I know that I can apply after I graduate, but from my understanding, they are extremely selective and I may or may not qualify. I obviously still have a lot to learn about military nursing but I want to fully understand the programs that are out there to help me pay for school and pay back my loans. Thanks for all of your help!!
