    I am currently an AS200 in AFROTC. My major is Nursing, I have a 3 year scholarship with a 3.2 GPA. However I would love to become a pilot for the Air Force. My questions is, what are my chances of getting a pilot slot as a nursing major. Do they still accept cadets in this major? What can i do to improve my chances. I am the also the PFO for my detachment and have a 100 PFA score if that helps.

    Is your scholarship nursing specific? For AROTC if you take nursing scholarship money, you HAVE to branch nursing (unless you fail the NCLEX then you are re-branched). If you took a line scholarship and just decided to major in nursing for whatever reason then I assume it would be allowed. That's just my outlook, I am not sure 100% how AFROTC works in this regard.

    My daughter (4 year AFROTC HSSP) was told that when the detachment submits their AS200's files for FT consideration that the detachment must list the cadets field of study (major). If you want to be considered for FT with other nursing majors instead of competing with the other non-tech majors then you will be a nurse and not considered for UPT. IMHO - If you are seriously considering pursuing a rated AFSC then you should (quickly) discuss your options with your Detachment Commander. Good luck!

    You may also want to look into how to become a flight nurse. That may give you the best of both worlds.
