I am currently working in a level 1 neurotrauma ICU and am 1 year away from my BSN with 3 years NTICU experience. I am seriously considering becoming an Air Force Officer, however, I'm concerned about getting pulled away from the ICU during my time in service.
Upon joining, am I likely to stay in the ICU (at different bases) over my tenure, or am I likely to get pulled away from the ICU to go to other areas such as LND, PACU, OR, ER, NICU, etc. Civilian or not, I want to focus my efforts in an ICU and this is the one doubt I have in my mind to joining the Air Force.
Any military ICU nurses out there wish to share their experiences? Also, would having my CCRN help my chances of staying in an AF ICU? Thanks - Julia
