Air Force selects 48 airmen for nursing program

The Air Force has selected 48 airmen to enroll in a program that will train them to be commissioned nurses.

The airmen selected for the 2013 Nurse Enlisted Commissioning Program will become full-time nursing students for up to 24 consecutive months at a college or university with an Air Force ROTC detachment, where they will complete their bachelor’s degrees. While in school, the selectees will receive all pay and allowances. Senior airmen who were selected will be promoted to staff sergeant before starting the program.

If they graduate and pass the Nursing National Council Licensure Examination, participants will be commissioned as second lieutenants.

“Qualified, dedicated nurses are critical to the military and civilian communities, and candidates go through rigorous screening to identify those who are ready for the responsibility and highly likely to succeed in the school and career field,” said Sandra Bruce, nurse education program manager at the Air Force Personnel Center.

The next selection board for the program will convene next May.
