DOD Civilian Nurses

  1. 0
    Hello,
    I am interested in transferring to the DOD overseas as an RN. I would like to transfer to Japan. I lived in Japan for 5-years as a civilian teaching in a Japanese Nursing School. My wife is also Japanese so I'm very familiar with the customs and speak and write a bit of the language.
    I currently work for the Veteran's Administration as an RN. At this time I'm nursing supervisor for 8-units. I will be graduating next May with an MSN in administration. I would really appreciate any information concerning such a position. For example: working conditions,housing, lifestyle,benefits, etc...

    Sorry, I can't help you with getting a job. However, I was stationed (with the Navy) and hubby with the Air Force at Yokota AB in Tokyo from 79 to 82. Our oldest son was born there. We liked it a lot. Sounds like a lot of fun.

    Thank you so much for your reply! I'm currently a career federal worker and an Air Force vet. I checked with HR and it sounds like it would be fairly straight forward to transfer. Although I was in the Air Force from 1981-1986, I was not a nurse at that time. I worked on the flightline in Germany and loved it. I had such a great time and wondered if others had enjoyed DOD nursing. It sounds like you really enjoyed it. You made my day!
