Eligible active-duty enlisted Airmen interested in pursuing a nursing commission have until Feb. 28 to submit their intent to apply, Air Force Personnel Center officials said Jan. 7.

The Nurse Enlisted Commissioning Program offers eligible members with an opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing and an Air Force commission, said Sandra Bruce, of the AFPC non-line officer management division.

“The selection board will convene in mid-May, but there are a variety of requirements that must be met prior to that, so interested Airmen should act now to ensure they complete their package and interview in time,” Bruce said.

Applicants selected for the program must begin classes during the Fall 2014 term.

Applicants must be United States citizens with current security clearance, senior airmen or above and able to earn a commission by age 42. Applicants stationed in the contiguous United States must have one year on station by the board date, and applicants overseas on a short tour must have at least nine months time on station. Overseas long-tour Airmen may not apply without prior approval from their AFPC career field functional manager. All applicants must be world-wide qualified.

Applicants must select a school that has an Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps detachment on the campus or a school that has a cross-town agreement with an AFROTC detachment. Schools must be nationally accredited and applicants must be able to complete their program within 24 months. Tuition and fees are limited to $15,000 per academic year.

Application Suspense Dates:
Feb. 28

  • Notification of intent to apply
  • Gain release from career field functional manager

March 28

  • Complete all prerequisites (prerequisites cannot be waived)
  • Submit transcripts for academic evaluation

April 11
