Default army nurse corps

Well, I'm going for it. It's been a long road; army reserves stopped taking associate's degrees for the nurse corps so I went back to school. I finished my bachelor's degree early this year and it has taken about six months to complete the entry paperwork. I commission next week as a reservist in the Army Nurse Corps!

Google units that posted their EFMB online, its a great motivator. It Will be one of your proudest moments when your pinned. I studied and practiced a year for it. Made it on the first try. We started the year with over 400 applicants, 9 were pinned!. Some of the applicants were on their 7th attempt!

Seems like since the recession, less people were getting out of the military to use their degrees outside. I originally wanted to go for Medical Service Corps officer so I got my bachelors, by the time I submitted my package after completing the degree the same program required a masters. Said, bye bye and left with the degree I got from active duty TA. By the time I would have completed my masters, who knows what would have been required by then. Wasnt going to waste any more time reenlisting going back to the sandbox only to have no guarenteed. Got out and got a managment job then moved over the a GS job with my degree. Now I'm finishing my Masters with the GI bill since I used active duty TA to get my last degree, then ask more money or move up as a GS. In less than a year I'll have my years from the Navy bought in towards my federal retirement and leave accrual.

Congrats, I know this is the area where the Army will do what you need them to do. They want nurses. At my school they will commission anyone with a C or better to go into the nurse corp

i'm on the same route right now. Getting my one year experience and finishing up my bachelors to get in the ANC. Served 4 years enlisted and wanted to continue in the reserves. Can anyone give me a summary of what you guys did after contacting your recruiter. They won't even give me the time of the day right now to discuss what happens throughout the whole process.

Flipdiver,

The process was complicated and took about 8 months. It involved a 65 page application, background check, credit checks, 3 professional (nursing, not MD or other medical person) references, transcripts from an accredited school, licenses and certification verification, etc. If your going for an additional skill identifier you'll need more documentation such as verification of hours worked in clinical specialty, and a skills checklist signed by your manager. I am an ER nurse, 66HM5. There are other specialties such as critical care, etc. If you've been out for a long time you might have to go to MEPS again, if not you'll still need medical clearance. Then all your info goes to the monthly nurse review board. I'm a reservist so active duty might be slightly different.
