Is there anyone currently in the Navy Reserve for Nursing that can share their experiences or give advice? I am considering this as an option and would like to get some feedback before I commit to anything. Thanks.

search / browse this forum - quite a few threads on this. Since you are looking at reserves are you joining a unit in your area? If so I'd recommend working through your local health care recruiter to conduct a base / unit tour, perhaps meet the commander, take some time to spend 1 on 1 with a newer nurse officer and discuss similar concerns that they likely had - all of this will be more relevant with the unit you are specifically looking at joining based on type of unit, their unique mission and the command climate of that unit. It also then can give you a potential lead on a letter of recommendation from that unit commander if you impress them with your potential value to their unit.
