Send me your questions. I have been in the Navy for 22 years
Here is one for you navy nurse.
I spent 21 yrs in the Navy and retired a a CPO. After retirement I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up..a nurse.
Now as I try to get back in the Navy I have hit a brick wall. If the shortage of nurses is as bad in the Navy as it is in the civilian sector, why is the upper age limit for the navy 35 and the Army at 47?
I would love to get back in the Navy, as a nurse, but it does not look as though it is going to happen. Right now I am researching my options as a reserve nurse and if it does not pan out I will try another branch.
If it matters, I am still within the age window for the Army. I am hoping my experience as an LPN in ICU and an RN in the ER will help me some.
We live in an age that if you order a pizza delivered to your house and call 911 at the same time to report a life or death situation....my money is on the pizza arriving first! Learn to protect yourself, become a wolf among the sheep!
