    Tallone, welcome to Allnurses! I can not answer all your questions, but unless the Military has changed a lot since I was in, you will not get any extra pay for working overtime... That being said, there are some pretty good bonus incentives right now for nurses going into the military.

    As far as the Nurse Anesthetist Program, I am also interested in this areas of nursing. There is a time of service prerequisite for the program, I think it is only one year, but other factors come into play also. This would not really be holding you back, as pretty much all the civilian programs I have looked into also have min. years experience required for admittance.

    As far as getting your State license goes, It is my understanding that you will be required to pass the NCLEX and hold an unrestricted State license prior to being commissioned into the Military.

    Hope this helps, I know it is a big decision to make

    Good luck to you!

    I believe you must have a certain number of posts before you can use the PM option...not sure how many it is though...
