No, Straba, but if I was 30 years younger, I would certainly be doing what you are ! (hindsight, y'know!)
Unfortunately, I never took advantage of what was offered to me while I was in the A.F. 30 yrs. ago.... I, too, was a corpsman..a medic. I could have stayed in, gotten my education and switched over to officer , but I got married instead, then came the children, and the rest of the story. I put in an extra two years in the AF Reserves in Air Evac and loved every minute of it.
Anyhoooooo.... fastfwd. to 30 years later, the kiddies are all grown and have left the nest... and I just this year followed up on my dream of becoming that RN ! Yep, I did it !
But you go for it ! I wish you well, and I'm soooooo excited with you... I can feel your anticipation and rejoice with you ! Again, if I had to do it over, I would have done it then, and "stayed in".
By the way, just what is the age "cutoff" limit for the Reserves now? And is there such a thing as an ADN nurse in the service these days? There wasn't back then.. I doubt it now.. must have the 4 year degree to be commisioned, right? What if you were an ADN.. and wanted to be in the medical field in the service? What "slot"would they put you in? I've often wondered about that. I know we never had LPNs.. the medics/corpsmen were the LPNs... anything changed?
Well, here's to you ! Go get 'em !
