Hi I have just passed my medical and am due to do my fitness test next week so all I have left is security clearance and interview. I am just wondering how long the waiting list will be until I get to Raleigh from this point. I am going in as a medical assistant submariner. Thank you

Based on current events, I would expect some form of delay. Especially with anything that is face to face (for obvious reasons).

Yeah my AFCO has already got everything sorted. I am doing my fitness test at home and taking a photo of the completed run on the treadmill. Also having my interview over the phone so considering I’m doing this do you still think I will be delayed?

There are so many variable involved in joining the RN normally, add an international pandemic and it truly is how long is a bit of string. When you are successful with your interview, that would be the time to as your CA for lead times for entry.

This is obviously barring the very real possibility that Phase 1 and 2 training could be cancelled as unnecessary risk.

So you think I won’t be going in until corona virus is all cleared. It’s just I kind of want to get in as soon as possible considering due to corona virus I’m not in school anymore I just want to get going. My careers advisor has said that I will get a joining date relatively quick because he wants to get me in ASAP aswell.

Accept the answer you have been given , due to present circumstances NO ONE knows.

Ok sorry for disturbing you

It's not a case of disturbing and there is no harm in asking questions, but the fact is we are living in unusual times right now and this is having a destabilising effect across the board. The answer to the question normally is that it takes as long as it takes so just stick with it and await further information when it comes.

To be honest, that's still the answer. Only it may take a bit longer than usual as we wait for this to ease off.

Stand by to stand by.
