Do you know how many were accepted this year? Do you know if they are increasing the size of the class? 

I'm not sure how much were accepted this year since we haven't met as a class in person yet maybe 13-15 direct accession students?

I think our class is about 30 or so students split pretty evenly between active duty and direct accessions and there are a couple of VA seats as well

I'm not sure on increasing the size of the class this yesr

I am planning to apply as well! I am in the process of studying for my CCRN. Is anyone else planning to take the GRE? What study resources are you using?

For ccrn I used the book "pass CCRN!” I feel like it had practice questions that I focused on and it went well. That was a long time ago. GRE magoosh is probably the best application but I got tired of it and just took the test after a month.

Thanks for the information! I did some research on study material, and I noticed that Magoosh looked like an in-depth study tool. I appreciate it.

Hello,

I am possibly looking to apply this FY through LTHET (currently serving active duty critical care RN). Anyone else?

Has anyone been able to get into contact with an AMEDD recruiter? I've reached out on the goarmy site, and spoke with a representative that took my information. It's been about two weeks, and was wondering how long till a recruiter reaches out.

I just did a Google search for AMEDD recruiters and called the office directly.

That's what I did, and I was told to wait for them to call back. I just was not sure how long the process is till they call back.

Call your local amedd station that you found on Google. If they don't address your concerns call the closest one besides that. Not all stations are the same unfortunately. 
Worst case contact usagpan directly and let them know that you have been unable to locate a recruiter. Their info is on Baylor usagpan website.

Thank you, I appreciate it!

If all that fails let me know. Finding a recruiter should never be a problem, sadly it happens.

Inserting myself in this thread to help answer questions. Graduating in may 2024 

That's awesome! Congrats!! If you had to do it over again would you? 
 

I am a VA Nurse and was wondering if you have any insight into the VA nurses you are in school with. Also, I know it's gonna be very individual specific, but how much time out of the program do you feel like you have available for other activities such as family? 
 

I have an MSN, 4.0 GPA, CCRN, and maintain my RRT credential. I also have a biochemistry class but not on the approved list. Any thoughts?

The program is tough but it's do-able and likely worth it. I don't know much about the VA perspective since they go to the Memphis VA. So we really don't have any interaction after phase 1. Phase 1 is very study intensive and the first year of phase 2 is also very busy. Family time is of course minimized but it depends on the individual. I have to study a lot because my memory is not what it used to be, so my family time suffers. Phase 1 I was studying non-stop barring a little time on the weekend. 

I won't comment on peoples suitability, as long as you meet the minimum requirements and have a good foundational understanding of critical care you should do well.
