Man, I'm glad I found this forum.
My wife and I have been talking about the potential for me to join the army as an active duty nurse. I will be graduating soon, and since the job market seems somewhat iffy where we are living, I looked into the army. I have a couple of questions for all of you married people.
What is it like to be the spouse of someone in the ANC?
I've read on other threads that chances of deployment as a new graduate are lower because we are classified as medical/surgical, is that true?
Is the tuition assistance/loan repayment, experience, and training worth the sacrifice of being in the army?
My wife and I are both excited about the experience and financial help I could get by going the army route, but she is very concerned about me being gone for long periods of time. If these questions have been answered more completely on other threads that I missed, please point me in the right direction.
