Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Will I be able to join as a soldier immediatley after I qualify? I'm currently a civvy stud. nurse.
  2. Do you mean a student nurse? I read the word stud several times and couldnt' place it with nurses :D :D

    Officer entry is not automatic and if you want soldier entry, that is fine too.

    Which part of the country are you?
  3. Haha yeah I did mean student I don't think I could pass off stud by any means. So I could join straight after qualifying? All I know is nursing in the army is all I can see myself doing.

    Is there anything that could be done prior to qualifying?

    I'm at Brighton Uni, great city great hospitals.

    Thanks for the help!
