i have spoken to my local recruiter who forwarded me to a local medical recruiter. my local recruiter told me several things. among them were: $25k sign on bonus, the navy will pay for college while giving me a monthly stipend for housing/food plus a salary. the loans that i have now (from my masters in occupational therapy) will be deferred until i am out of the navy. the medical recruiter told me this: they do not pay for my nursing education..they give me a monthly allowance of $1000 to put towards school...he has heard nothing about a 25k sign on (he said it's $10k before taxes), he has also heard nothing about the housing allowance etc during school. i have been in contact with several nurses in the nurse corp and they told me everything that my local recruiter (not medical) told me. what is going on here? who should i believe? he is calling me back within 24 hrs to see what he can offer me. what should i expect to be offered and what should i try to negotiate?thanks for any help you can offer!
