Mental health nursing and the military...


Hi, I might be a bit presumptuous with this post. 30 yrs old in a BSN program looking to be done soon.

I have a 5 year's experience in the mental health field and 7 year's total experience in healthcare.

I am hoping to continue my growth in the mental health field as working as a nurse in psych. One day hopefully achieve my APRN as a mental health nurse practitioner or Graduate cert. in Foresenic nursing.

Question in regards to mental health nursing in the military. I am interested in joining the Navy as I love the water and ocean. However, they don't seem to offer much details on their recruiting site n regards to nursing. In addition, it appears the Air Force followed by the Army offer more psych services than the Navy.

Looking for feedback on which services you think have the most comprehensive psych and nursing services?
