Army/AirForce Nurse

Specialties Government


Hello all,

I am a nurse resident that is currently practicing at a hospital (Less than 3 months experience). I have a BSN. I recently looked into my student loan repayment and was in for a shocker. I have looked into doing Army/AirForce Nursing to help pay off my $80k student loan. I want to do either critical care nurse, emergency nurse or trauma nurse. I do want to become a nurse practitioner or CRNA as well. Anyadvice? How long is the contract?Reserve vs. Active Duty? Is it worth it? 





Specializes in Adult Critical Care.

I have posted a lot on this.  If you click the hyperlink of my name, you'll be able to read my previous posts.  They should give you all the information you could possibly want.

Talk to a recruiter.  They are going to be able to give you factual information. I just retired from the Army Nurse Corps and things have changed a lot since 2001 when I went in.   Good luck.
