More and more, I am thinking of joining the military as a nurse. But I had a question about joining while I'm still a fresh new grad or joining when I have more experience under my belt. I want to work in the ICU, and it's very unlikely I will start out in the ICU as a new grad. Most likely, I would only be able to transition to the ICU after 1-2 years of med-surg experience, at the minimum. If I chose the military route after getting med-surg experience, would I be pigeon-holed in med-surg even as a military nurse? Or would I be allowed to transition to ICU in the military, with no prior ICU experience?
