Quote from Corvette Guy
By saying, "we are also military", is your husband in the Army Nurse Corps at BAMC [FSH, TX]? I read your Bio & saw your into physical fitness. The Jimmy Brought Fitness Center at FSH is an excellent place to workout! My wife & I have used the facility several times. If I was active duty at BAMC [may be starting in June '06] I'd cancel my Golds Gym membership for sure. I'm with the 5501st USAH, USAR, and live about 65 miles north of FSH.
Being a Male RN has its pros & cons. However, I've never regretted for one minute the decision to start a second career in nursing. Have you considered the Army Nurse Corps, either Active, or Reserve Component? IMHO, seems the Male RNs [and RNs in general] get more respect in the Army Nurse Corps, than in civilian sector.
Hi Corvetteguy, My husband is with the 5th Army Emergency Operations Center at Fort Sam. He was a tanker (M1A1) and we have been in SA for 2/12 years. Be bought a house in North East SA and plan to retire here. When time permits I meet my husband during lunch and we work out together at Jimmy Brought. The hurricanes have put our lunchdates on halt for now, but we will resume it when things slow down. It is a very nice facility, but I also have a membership at Bally's Total Fitness.....so there are no excuses
I love weight training, and it has kept me in good shape. I also do cardio every day for at least 30 minutes. between March 2003 and April 2004 I had 5 surgeries at BAMC, three major. The docs and nurses, male and female alike (in uniform) were all excellent! My OB team was from Wilford Hall and great!!!!
I will be 46 tomorrow and I feel wonderful thanks to the great care I received.
I am starting a second life, I want to become a nurse....I just need to survive my A&P class which I am taking at SAC.
Maybe I see you and your wife at Jimmy Brought sometime, wouldn't that be cool?
Have a great weekend.
