Hi I'm currently 18 about to start my last semester of prenursing and will begin nursing school fall 2013. I have also recently adopted my sister's 4 year old daughter. I have always wanted to do nursing in either the Navy or Army. Is this possible as a single mom? I still have a few years to go but want to know my options and of course do whats best for my child. I'm not looking to make a life long career anymore but would like to do a few years in the nurse corps. I know I may deploy and my parents are willing to take care of her when I deploy. I've heard I would have to turn over guardianship to another person while seving active duty. Is this correct or just while I deploy? Can my child live with me while I'm still in the US? I don't mind and I know my parents don't mind taking care of her for up to a year that I am deployed but it wouldn't be fair for me to have my parents raise another kid when they are about to be done with their 7th just so I can pursue an unnecessary dream. Thanks and anything else you can think of just tell me!
