Changing Specialty in Navy Reserves

  1. Hello,
    I am about to submit the application for Med-surge nurse in Navy reserves. I would like to change my credential to periop nurse later when my first contract is up. I am working in OR now, but not long enough to be a strong candidate.
    Is it easy to switch nursing specialty in Navy reserves?
    I have spent 4 years in active and 3 years in air force reserves. I want to retire in the future. So I do not want to be stuck with one specialty for the rest of my career.

    Thank you so much.

    You'll have to request a sub-specialty code once you're in. When did you start the process and who is your recruiter?
