I am considering rejoining the RNR having discarded the idea of joining the regular RN due mainly to starting pay - i.e. with kids and a mortgage to pay I cannot take a pay cut. However I read on another thread that the E(IS) Branch, which I don't think existed back when I was considering a regular RN career recruits officers straight into the rank of Lt. I'm not so interested in what rank you get, but the pay. As this might be a financially do-able way to join the regular RN. Can anybody confirm what the starting pay (at the start of Dartmouth) would be for E(IS) Officers?
