Army CRNA

Posted
by brandon1491 brandon1491 (New) New

Hey All,

I have been looking into a career track to getting my CRNA. I've been a nurse for 5 years now and worked in many different settings. Currently in critical care. I have always had an interest in airway management and really enjoy the art of sedation.

When I was younger I almost enlisted in the military for multiple personal reasons and now that I am considering a track into grad school I am once again reconsidering enlistment as an officer.

I was wondering if any current or previous servicemen or servicewomen would be willing to speak with me a little bit about their experience and some of the benefits vs the drawbacks of pursuing a career as a CRNA in the military either by reply or personal message. Any information is greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading.

Do you know any army medical recruiter I can get in contact with. I am a RN with 5 years and I will like to join the Army. The office in my area seems to be a local recruiting office. Thanks
