    Since the Navy does have MOS's in the medical field (and we don't), I think you'd be better off serving with them. But remember, you'll most likely be aboard ship somewhere in the world. Sailors can take on-line courses aboard ship. I'm just not sure about a nursing program (how would you do clinical work on real patients). Be sure to ask the Navy recruiter about this and if there are any on-line nursing programs available to sailors while deployed.
    yessir top, seems that's what most of us old salts are telling him... perhaps the shower-shoe could look into sea school and become a sea-going bell hop .

    If you enlist in the MC and are overweight you will be classified as a fat body and you will become fit, most likely not to your liking. Also, you will become stressed like never before. Perhaps your plan needs to be rethought.
    oh yeah, that's when you're sent to motivation platoon and you will lose weight!

    These day's prospect's (recruit wannabes) are not sent to recruit training (Boot Camp) if they cannot pass the physical prep that recruiters are required to perform...

    They must already be within the height and weight requirements, if on the Delayed Entry Program,, they will be required to attend monthly or as scheduled physical training programs to prep them for Boot..

    Gone are the days where they walk in, sign up and go...

    The Recruiter's ass is on the line if they even think to tell a prospect anything but the absolute facts...

    With computerization and manpower all programmed the Marine Corps knows everyday how many of which MOS they need for the following years... Thus, the applicant chooses early their respective MOS...

    Hope that helps a bit...

    let's see; it seems to me the name "prospects" typically refers to someone who wants to join an outlaw motorcycle gang.

    Well, biker gang/Marine Corps - ya gotta admit there's a lot of similarities!

    We wear colors (uniforms), earn "patches", get our own names, have a top-to-bottom order of who can boss who around, usually hang out and travel in groups, have been known to engage in less-than-polite behavior, always have each other's backs...

    Now, I don't mean nothin', I'm just sayin'!

    Skip,

    Prospects is just the word they use to describe
    a person regarded as likely to succeed or as a potential customer, client, etc...

    "Poolee" are what sworn in to the "DEP" Delayed Entry Program are called..

    The pool needs poolee's to keep a steady flow going to MCRD at both Depot's..

    They started using those definitions back in 78-79 to describe recruiting terminology...

    Just words, terms and acronyms...

    The platoon that is the weight loss platoon is the Physical Conditioning Platoon (PCP),

    The Motivation platoon is for motivation.
