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. does anyone know what the crack is for someone wanting to join up as a nurse with partial hearing loss in one ear?? :?
  2. not to sure what the criteria is upon enlistment. I have partial hearing loss in one ear and it isnt a problem.

    no doubt somone on here should be able to shine some light on your predicament.

    best of luck!
  3. sorry you'll have to shout!
  4. :lol: Please take that Banana out of your ear :lol:
  5. if your not def before you join , you will be when you leave,,,,
  6. a wild stab I don't have the relevant pub at hand:

    I think it is probably H2/H2 which means no more than ?115 decibels loss in each ear.

    Best to call the medical boards people or even the AFCO - if it is RAF then pm me and I can put you in touch with the nurse recruiter.
  7. Yeah H3 is a fail
