    The majority of the patients I see in a military hospital are dependents and retirees, which is typically reflective of the civilian population's health status (read: same). Military members 'may' be grateful for your care, or they may treat you like wait staff at a hotel.

    As far as pursuing CRNA school goes, I know for the Navy you have to apply to the DUINS program and have your package go in front of a board for selection. It is competitive, and based upon a myriad of things, such as officer evals from multiple years, GRE scores, GPA in any post-BSN coursework, specialty-leader endorsement, etc. Don't quote me, but they may now have a requirement that you complete at least your second duty station to apply, with typical rotations being 3 years per. In essence, the military is not a quick route to CRNA - you're actually more likely to get in/complete school now on your own while out based upon the experience you listed.

    "some new grads are downright incompetent these days"

    I won't assume that you mean to say there weren't incompetent grads 'back in the day' - perhaps if training programs were better, results would be better.

    Unless they've done it themselves, they can't say with any certainty it's easy, it's merely their unsubstantiated generalization based on simple observations.

    Personally, i'm an A type hardcore student - all A's through my whole life...well, I get B's now - this nursing business is hard!
