You need to get very specific when talking to a recruiter.
Thats very good advice. I am currently enlisted in the USAF. When im done with my enlistment (3 more years) i'll be going back to school for a BSN, and theres a chance that I might come back after a couple of years.
When talking to a recruiter, ask all the questions you can. There is also an awesome website for OTS questions and answers. I would say most of the people on there are shooting for Pilot/Nav slots, but theres some Nurse info too (and the process is, for the most part, the same for both flying and non-flying jobs).
I dont know about you, but I would look into being a Flight Nurse. I am currently in a flying job, and have flown a good share of Med-Evacs, and it just seems like something I could fall right into (im at home in the air). Im sure the ground jobs are too, but flying missions like Med Evacs are so rewarding... (heres a little news clip from my first Med Evac http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/...n1075823.shtml
). Being able to go home and see your work on the news is a cool feeling.
Like I said, im enlisted, but have a pretty good grasp on what the AF life is like. If you have questions feel free to shoot them this way. I also have a good view on the application process to OTS, since before I decided to go into nursing I was headed in the Pilot direction (had an application and everything ready to go, but wasnt ready to sign a 10 year commitment
