    This mos becomes available as of October of this year. I’m enlisting as one, and will be enlisting as a specialist. You have to have your practical nursing license and have passed the NCLEX to have this mos, as far as I’ve been told. I will be in the acasp program and will not have to attend AIT, but will have to do some proficiency test.

    I am already an LPN with a current license. I meet the qualifications and would not have to attend AIT. What rank would I be going in?

  • Ebony Battle

      I am an e4(p) and just received orders for this school (USAR).

    The 68C course is accredited through Texas a LVN (Licensed Vocational Nurse). The vocational training attribution is a limiting factor on the ability to transfer any ACE guide recommendation for credits. Traditional colleges will not always give the maximum number of credits, especially if attempting to apply to a RN program.

    Note: I am Retired Army, former 91C/68WM6/68C, who obtained his RN while in service. I do speak from experience.
