I'm a relatively new RN of 6 months and a current AFANG member with prior service on active duty as enlisted. I've recently put my paperwork in for the Navy Nurse Candidate Program and think I have a good chance of being accepted this year but I have some concerns.
I've been working very busily on a med surg floor as my 'real world' experience and I have to be honest, I really hate it. I dread going to work because I never know what to expect and it's really hard on me, so many crazy people and so many acute problems. If I feel this way about civilian nursing - is it going to be the same in the military?
I've talked to my recruiter who makes it sound like it will be much better but I just don't know - been really stressed out over this lately. I'm making my spouse nuts! Help!
