I'm a current nursing student who has been interested in joining USAF for years. I've been kicking myself over not joining years ago when I completed my first bachelor's degree.
In about 8 months, I will have my BSN. Since there is a huge number of nurses applying to the Nurse Corps, would it be possible to commission in as a health care administrator and then switch over as a nurse officer after your initial service is complete? I heard that switching jobs is difficult; is that true?
My current plan is to put 1000% effort into applying to the nurse corps and if that doesn't work out, I would attempt to apply as an administrative officer. I am 26 years old with no prior service and I am anxious to get started on accruing time towards my 20 years.
