The Nurse Enlisted and Direct Enlisted Commissioning (DEC) Programs are accepting applications from active duty enlisted Airmen through Jan. 27, 2017, for the April selection boards. NECP offers the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing at a college or university. Airmen selected by the NECP board will start school in fall 2017. The DEC program also allows Airmen to commission into the Nurse Corps if they already possess a nursing degree and have passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). Applicants must be U.S. Citizens with rank of senior airman or higher and no more than 10 years total active federal service (12 years for DEC) as of April 30, 2017.
