    I know this girl that just graduated nursing school and said she decided to join the Navy to become an officer. The thing is the recruiter or whoever she talked to told her she doen't haven't to do all the "tough" training. But I've never heard of an officer that doesn't have to go to OCS because I know the make it hard for a reason. My question is are they lying to her or does she actually not have to do OCS?

    I've heard if they are in the medical field you get automatically commissioned. I could be wrong though.

    I just fiqured they would have to because an officer needs to be a leader in every aspect of life. Example: Would you have as much respect for your leader if they can't even keep up with you in a run. That's my opinion anyway. An officer needs to lead from the front no matter what.
     
  4. I think its different with the medical field could be wrong.
