My wife has been an RN for 4 years, and has her BSN already. Low and behold she has always wanted to be an AF nurse. My reaction was for her to go for it. I was in the Marines, and I spent a year working as a civilian contractor on the gates at an AFB. This is something that her family talked her out of doing when she was younger, and now they can't, and I support her 100%. She has to lose 10 more lbs, but they are starting the paperwork, and are shooting for the boards in Feb. She has already lost 20lbs so I know she is serious, we have figured out her dream sheet. We have a daughter, and the weight is from that. They said she would most likely go med/surg, and she wants to be a flight nurse, and they said its possible that she could do that right off the bat, but not to get her hopes up. She is just happy to be pursuing her goal with support.
