    Good day,

    I'm a prior service Air Force E-5, medic (4N071 Journeyman) with 7 years of service.  I'm aware that my time in service restricts me to open rate billets only.

    I looked over the health services rate and I didn't see anything that I didn't already do in the Air Force.  Actually it appears my training exceeds the basic rate requirements (which I imagine is all I need to meet).  I also have over 60 college credits in nursing in addition to my BA.

    Which got me hoping that perhaps the Coast Guard would allow me to join as HS.  If not, my time in service does me in and that's all she wrote.

    Thank you,

    Unfortunately, the CG just isn't hurting for HS's these days. I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but better to know that up front. Good luck to you.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    You would still have to attend HS A School. The wait for that school is over three years(you place your name on the school list after you report to your first unit as an E3).

    The OP wouldn't be able to enlist in the CG. With more than 5 years of prior service, he would have to qualify to come in as an E-4 in order to come in. Since the highest we could bring him in as would be an E-3, we couldn't make it happen unfortunately.
