Military Deloyment After Graduation

  1. 0 I am currently a nursing student who will be graduating this May with a BSN. I have a few years of health care experience as well as a few years in the military. I have recently been told that I may be deployed to the middle east for a year after graduation in May. I am excited for the deployment as I know I will have a job after graduation. However, I am concerned about finding a nursing job upon return to the country after being away for a year. Does anyone have any insight into this?

    I should mention that my military job is also medically related. Thanks.

    I have no idea, but is it possible that instead of what you are currently employed for in the military, if you could be traind into a military RN? Just a thought.
    Thank you for your service!

    I will not be able to take a nursing position unfortunately, but I will be able to use a great deal of my skills while deployed. I think that may be the challenging part. It won't be "nursing" experience even though I will be using those skills. Thanks for your input as well as your support!!
