I was stationed at Ft Leonard Wood for 5 1/2 yrs. Are you a LPN or RN? What do you plan to get your degree in? :yeah:

Pay scale is not very high. You can work in Rolla, Lebanon or here on base. I got here in July with my husband. Can't wait to leave. The hospital on post is always looking for nurses. I start Lincolns program in August. Just finished my last pre-reqs. I can't tell you anything about the program but what I have heard and that is "it is hard and you teach yourself".
