    My husband is active duty and I work at the hospital on his base. From my experience it is rather easy to get a contractor job in a military hospital. More than half the staff at the hospital that I work at are civilian. Although they say they require at least a year experience, but I applied with 8 months of experience and I got hired. If you have any other questions fell free to PM me.

    when i was married to an air force nurse, i had no trouble getting jobs in civilian hospitals near the base. i preferred the civilian hospitals because the pay was better, hours were better, got more holidays and the nursing was more interesting. i know there were a lot of civilian nurses at the base hospital as well, but you may want to consider a civilian hospital, if there's one nearby.

    good luck!

    I am just here to say Hi, and sorry that I don't have answers to your questions. I have been an Army wife for 20+ years and finally started taking prerequisite classes towards RN starting last fall. That's what I want to do when my husband hopefully retires in 3 years. Frequent moves (some overseas), babies, separations from spouse and the recent Hurricane drama made me move like pondwater so far, but I will get there eventually
