How LPN/LVN join the Air Force

  1. Hi
    I just got my LVN license 2 months ago and am really interested in joining in the military, especially Air Force Reserve. I heard that AF has good benefits and education.
    I also have an associate degree. Would it count toward my rank?
    Have any of you had joined in AF as an LPN? What is your rank?
    What can I do as an LPN in the Air Force Reserve? Can they continue train me to RN or higher?
    Please tell me your experience there and what I should ask the recruiter specifically related to my job.
    if you already take time to reply me, please don't just say that "go talk to a recruiter". I have talked to them and known that most recruiters would do anything to let you sign the contract.

    Appreciate any reply.

    AF doesn't really use that LVN right now. We have 4N's which are medical tech's. They don't have licenses, work under a nurse. They don't have the same job role that an LVN does in the civilian world. Army does have LVN's. I would suggest you keep on trucking for the BSN then come in. As an LVN, you go to the local enlisted recruiter.

    I second the response of midinphx. LVN is an in between that isn't utilized much in the military. Better off to keep working towards BSN. All branches only take RN's with a BSN from what I've seen.
