I'm Sergeant Josh Hopper and I work with the Air Force Nursing Corps for Ohio and Indiana. If any of you have ever had any questions feel free to post them. One question I get alot is about our MSN scholarships
. We pay 100% of school for you to become an CRNA, Mid Wife, or most Practitioners. You continue to recieve your full time pay check while going to school. If you have more questions about this or any other Air Force Nurse Corps Questions feel free to ask.

If you are currently in a BSN or RN to BSN program you cannot miss semesters of school because you have to have at least a bachelors. We have positions availble for that range from BSN students in their final year to experienced MSN nurses. One of the larger benefits to the Nurse Corps is the scholarships
we offer for Nurses to earn their MSN in fields like CRNA, Mid Wife, and just about any Practitioner field. We pay 100% of school and you still get paid full time while are you are student. You cannot enlist as a nurse. You can attempt to get a job as a medic tech though. I'm not sure about the Navy but the Air Force offers up to 40k loan repayment and up to 30k sign on bonus. Pay is similar and in some cases better. Starting pay ranges from 50-70k+ a year depending on your experience and location. You do have to have your braces removed prior to entering active duty. You may apply while they are still on though. You can have your hair as long as you want but in uniform it has to be worn up and hang no longer than the bottom of the collar. You cannot be considered overweight, at 5'6" you cannot be over 170. You have to be in good general health.
If you have any other question feel free to post them here
