Hey all,

I'm graduating this year from my BSCN program in Canada, and I'm considering applying to the Canadian Armed Forces as a Nursing Officer. I've already talked to a recruiter, and he told me I would make 80k a year once I become a Captain. Is that true, or was he stretching the truth a bit? Does anyone know more about the pay, how long it takes to rise through the ranks, benefits, work conditions ... etc.?

I would go back and ask all those questions of the recruiter.  Does he have some written information to give you?  There are a whole lot of questions I'd want answered before I signed on the dotted line, and I'd want the info straight from the horse's mouth.  In writing.

My husband is in the canadian army. There is lots information available online. I really don't why people don't google the information. All salary even the basic courses are also available on government website that are required before you can enter military nursing as a Nursing officer.
