I'm a registered nurse, age 32. I'm seriously considering the navy reserve nurse corps and I recently read that the general age limit has been raised to 39. Is this for enlisted members only or does it include officers?

Qualifications

Age – At least 20 and less than 40 years of age at time of appointment. Maximum age limit may be waived on a case-by-case basis (up to age 51), depending on a person’s qualifications and the needs of the Navy. Age limits may be adjusted for previous commissioned service.

Physical – Meet general physical requirements for commissioned officers in the Navy.

Marital Status – No restrictions.

Citizenship – U.S. citizen.

Education – Should be a graduate of a U.S. nursing education program granting a Bachelor’s degree (BSN) accredited by the appropriate state board of nursing and the National League of Nursing (NLN). Foreign degrees are not recognized unless accredited by US institution or superceded by a US-granted MSN degree.


Direct Appointment

A registered nurse, licensed, in good standing and presently engaged in nursing practice is eligible to apply for a direct appointment in the Navy Reserve as a Nurse Corps officer. The rank offered at the time of appointment is determined by the applicant’s education, professional experience and current Navy policy.
