Previous experience accepted?
- 0Jul 29, '06 by dano104I was a crewchief/flight engineer in the Army for 7 years (chinook helicopters) I'm currently a nursing student, first year. Do you think this military experience will give me the chance to be a flight nurse?

It really isn't that hard to ride around in a helicopter, and RN's certainly don't have to fix them. Now keeping someone alive at 3,000 feet can be tough.
Focus on obtaining prehospital EMS experience and ICU experience and definitely don't count on your experience as a crew chief to carry much wt.
Regardless, kudo's to you for your service and thank you for the time you spent serving this great country.
