Ouxphys I would recommend speaking with a healthcare recruiter for each respective branch to see what is offered for the current FY. Cheers.

The AF is offering loan repayment as of 2 months ago, per one of our new nurses who just graduated from COT (officer basic).  It was $80k for 4 years.  There was no accession bonus, however.

When I signed my contract last year the Army was offering a sign on bonus of $15k a year for a 66S. Definitely connect with your local AMEDD office.

66T (Trauma Nurse) and 66S (Crit Care Nurse) have $15k/yr retention bonus for 2, 3, 4 year contracts. I do not recall seeing a sign-on bonus, but they offer the loan repayment and once you have a critical ASI of S, T, E you can apply for the bonuses. Keep in mind, all bonuses will be taxed...heavily, and you must claim them as income each year come tax season. With a 15k bonus you'll get about 10k.

To be honest it’s different than I expected. Not bad just different. You will get out of it what you put in. You have to be a go getter or you’ll miss the opportunities. (You have to look for them.) & there’s some really awesome people to meet. Last but not least I’ve learned they’ve got the hurry up & wait game down to a science. Lol

I’m still waiting to go to DCC in September & hopefully get BOLC scheduled in November. Once those are completed then I can actually become more involved & productive
