    I am a first year adult nursing student and been looking into applying for being a student nurse in the army. Was wondering if anyone else has fancied this and if anyone knows the selection process? Thanks

    Selection as far as I remember (got some mates as student RAF nurses, was in RAF as a student ODP until I damaged my back during basic, and have researched the field some time ago myself) is a 2 day afair of interviews, fitness, and team exercises, etc.

    If selected you have to first do the basic army recruit training, then study at Birmingham City University for 3 years after which you are promoted to acting corporal. If you finish the first year of your nursing qualification you MAY be able get some transferred credit, but you'll still have have to study at Birmingham and do the recruit training.

    I'd suggest looking here first:

    If you want to continue studying at your current uni and enter directly as a 2Lt. Nursing Officer (which is HIGHLY competitive by the way with only 10 places a year available) then you may wish to consider the Nursing Cadetship scheme:

    However in all instances I suggest contacting the nursing recruitment team first to discuss things further if you need guidance:

    QARANC Recruiting, HQ AMS, Slim Road, Camberley, GU15 4NP.

    I hope this has been of help, and good luck!
