Friction Posted August 24, 2011 Share Posted August 24, 2011 Hello Everyone, So I'm an HM3 in the Navy Reserves at the moment. I was originally interested in obtaining my BSN before moving on to PA school, wherever that may be, however I've been doing research and had a few questions. Anyways, I was talking to any Army 68w in my A&P class today and we got to talking about the IPAP program. He told me, which I don't know is true for the Navy, that in the Army you can apply without a Bachelor's and also get a contract within the reserves, not just active. I'm just wondering if both of these cases are in fact true in the Navy as well? I'm not really concerned about going active for 3+ years, but I would like to know if I need a BSN/other bachelor's before being accepted to the IPAP program? Also, he was saying that IPAP students are sent through 8 different rotations in the second year. If I'm interested in OR/ER/Neuro is there any opportunity for me to apply for a residency following completion? I guess this would be more applicable if they offer the IPAP through the reserve system. Thanks, HM3 Frick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
