    I believe direct commission requires the BSN.

      Perhaps you can DC into the ARNG or Army reserves with ADN NCLEX-RN. You will have to continue to get your BSN to get to 0-3 and progress your career. You may even qualify for a bonus. Best bet is to contact your state OSM or AMEDD recruiter in your state.

          Unless the reg has recently changed, RC nurses can commission with just an AS degree and must have a BSN for promotion to Major.

            Different for Active Duty? I always thought it was the same. Hmmmm...

            From GoArmy.com

            To qualify for an Active Duty Regular Army appointment as an Officer in the Nurse Corps, you must meet all of the following conditions:

            * Meet the prescribed medical and moral standards for appointment as a commissioned Officer
            * Be a United States citizen
            * Have a Bachelor degree in nursing (BSN) or Master's degree in Nursing (MSN) from a nursing school accredited in the United States
            * Have a valid, unrestricted RN license
            * Be 21-42 years of age (waivers may be granted to applicants)
            * Experienced health care professionals ages 43 to 60 years old may apply for the new two-year service obligation option. Learn More
            * Have a favorable security investigation completed.
            If I was still incorrect, at least you know why.

                I am an ADN RN, prior service AZ ARNG, looking to join the guard as a nurse. Is there a contact number for Arizona?

                Thanks
