I have a couple questions also. I'm currently an LPN and I am interested in upgrading to a RN through the ROTP. There are 6 courses from the first year that I have to complete before I can go into the second year of the program as a full time student to become a degree nurse. The University offers seats in these classes to LPN's that are bridgeing into the RN program. I was wondering if the military will subsidize me for those 6 courses even though I wouldn't be a full time student. Also I've read a great deal on this sight that nurses tend to end up in paper pushing postings. I was wondering if this is almost forced upon them due to lack of availability of more hands on postings or if its personal preference. I also am interested in the aeromedevac (I beleive thats how you spell it) course. Is there opportunity for new NO's to get into this program in the first couple years of service, or is it a program that is coveted to get into?
I can answer the question about the bridging program for LPNs. You will not be subsidized unless you are in full-time Nursing degree program at an university. Whatever programs you have to take to get unconditional acceptance into the program are at your expense.
