My question is, can RN's be combat medics or do you have to be a doctor? Im a junior in high school right now and when I graduate I plan on going to college to become an RN, while in school I am going to join the ROTC then Army after I graduate. I am sure I am going to be a nurse in the army, but thats the thing isnt just saying nurse in the army broad? are there many sub group kind of things while being an army nurse? All I know is that I dont want to end up stationed at some hospital in the middle of Georgia, I want to be overseas, I guess get more into the action. The way I feel about it is that I know I dont have the courage to be a solider so I feel that I can help by fixing them when they need help so they can either go back or go home alive. any info would be aprreciated!
