Looking for experiences of USAF Flight Nurses


  • Specializes in Critical Care Medicine. Has 6 years experience.

Hello all!

I'm an Army National Guard nurse and civilian critical care nurse practitioner.

The USAF Reserves are not currently recruiting nurse practitioners, but I can go in as a flight nurse. I'm waiting to pin on CPT in the NG, but am willing to put a hold on that if I can actually do a clinical job I'm suited for in any branch (USAF seems the way to go).

Any experiences anyone can share? Collaboration w/ physicians, NPs, PAs? Deployment opportunities? I just want to deploy at-least once in my career as a junior officer...

Thanks in advance!
