    But I'm allergic to penicillin, that's why I wore a third (red) tag.

    HospitalCorpsman,

    Are you still here? We give all of this great advice, and you should say "Thanks for the info!"

    Just saying.

    Yes, you are correct. I'm not a hospital corpsman, yet.

    You are correct. You are right and I am concentrating on graduating boot camp. I've been studying the START guide as well as going to the gym to get my body physically fit. Thank you for the advice. The reason I ask about A and C school is that I also want to prepare for that. I don't ship off until November. I have months to prepare. I hope you understand.

    Good advice.

    That is the reason that the only thing that can be promised is a TRY at becoming a Corpsman, after, if you are good enough to make it through basic.

    If it's still the way it was, IF you have completed basic AND you have completed Corps school. you will be given a chance to either go attend field med school, or you might stay on the Navy side.

    Field med training is to prepare one for serving with the Marines.

    After you have finished with the basic Corps school, when it is time to reenlist near the end of your contract is when it is time to get into a new field within the Hospital Corps.

    You have things to prove to the Navy before it is going to let you into an allied health field.

    I hope that this helps.
    What exactly is "wash-out rate" means?

    I have nothing against the Marines and I don't look down to corpsman helping the Marines, but, I personally prefer to work within a hospital/clinic setting.

The HM C School Detailer can be reached at 901-874-3808 or 901-874-3322
    Oh my goodness. You are amazing. How did you get that detailer contact number? Are those the only two? Oh, and I try to call both numbers and each time it's straight to voice mail. I think I should leave a voice mail, huh? I visited this link

    http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-np.../default2.aspx

    I click detailer contact and it says restricted access. :/

    Wash out rate in bootcamp means those that are discharged from bootcamp, to the civilian world.

    Wash out from the Corp school means that before I came to the school, there were 50% that couldn't hack the school, and were sent back to the regular Navy, for training in whatever field the Navy was short on people in.

    In my class, there was 100% graduating. I was the class adjutant, which comes down to being the classes company commander, kind of sort of. I kept all of the students that were about to fail and wash out, after class, for 2 hours, to go over and over and over those things that they were failing at, until they not only how to answer the test questions, but also how to apply their learning once they had graduated.

    Also, being adjutant, I got to wear the adjutants aguilette. It was a black and white 'rope,' worn on the shoulder. It made me look really spiffy!

    Well, it did! Kind of.

    I hope that the above answers your questions.
