thinking of joining need help

hi ppl im thinking of joining the RN ive called the careers office and have been told they wont take any applications until end of sept. im looking to join as a diver im physically fit enough but is it a problem that i am 29 ive seen the wait list is 24 months do alot of ppl apply to become a diver! if i cant get in as a diver any help on choosing another career would be a massive help cheers
You're allowed to join up to age 36, so as long as you're fit and healthy don't panic about your age. I'm nearly 28 and I've been on the waiting list to start phase one for just over a year. If you do decide to apply be prepared for a long wait.

I was in the most recent pass out of Raleigh and there was about 8 or 9 divers, oldest was about 33 so should be alright. It's worth the wait, just don't do what someone did and PVR on the 1st day of getting to Raleigh lol..

Try the RNR to gain experience and contacts then go full time.

May look at you more favourably if you have some time in blue.
I don't agree. If he is ready to go regular then the waiting time he has will not be long enough to gain proper experience, and just ends up wasting the time and energy of the RNR DS.

In his late 20s he should have all experience necessary.
