Ok Whykai, here's the scoop...ROTC is a pretty good deal, but I never did it, so I'm unfamiliar with the benefits and requirements. All I know is that some friends of mine did it and now outrank me, and they're 2-3 years younger. In order to get ICU, you either need extensive civilian ICU experience prior to entering the AF, or you need to go through a residency program once in the AF. The problem is, you need to spend about 2 years as med surg before you're eligible to apply to the residency. Bottom line is, you'll need 2+ years before they'll consider you for ICU, whether civilian or AF.ICU in the AF is extremely competitive. Also, the only way to get into CRNA school (yes, they will pay), is to be an ICU nurse. So, lets say you have no experience. You would definitely start medsurg. After 2-3 years you'd get into the ICU program, which is 18 months long. Then you'd work ICU a minimum of 1 year before you could apply to CRNA, but other requirements may apply, lengthening your wait. You're looking at a minimum of 5 years before you'd be able to apply for CRNA, and another year before you start. Your payback for CRNA school would year for year. When I joined, my commitment was 6 years, but they paid a ton of my school debt, too. Don't forget, too, it'll take 6+ months to get in, then another 6+ to attend officers school.I have a feeling that's not exactly what you wanted to hear. Getting a CRNA is not easy, even through the AF. However, the AF is very rewarding in a ton of ways.
