i can't handle the physical training. Navy is hiring for nurses. there's no experience required. no citizenship required as long as u are a legal resident of USA. i talked to their customer service, he said that it's also possible for you to be assigned on warzone. i can't handle that either. maybe if there's no job here, then ill cosider that field

First of all, the military is only a reflection of the rest of society and with the economy the way it is, it's also very hard to get into the military as a new nurse right now. It is not the magical answer for everyone, and even if you did apply and get in, it is by no means a fast process. Second, in order to be a nurse (who are commissioned officers), you have to be a citizen. You don't have to be a citizen to enlist, but to be a commissioned officer, you most definitely do.

Hi there,

I am a new grad (Sep 2010) in Ontario (Canada) and have just started to apply for work. There's not much out there for my area, also my friend is in the same boat who graduated in June 2010. the government new grad initiative is no longer offered for us at all. I feel lost and not certain of how to acquire a job when all postings require experience. my last clinical experience finished in April 2010, so I worry that my marketability decreases with each passing day. just thought I'd mention that you are certainly not alone

I tried actually. the no experience required is false. they was 90 days of experience required. you may have talked to a regular navy recruiter for enlisted and not for the officer program. this is the response i got from the Navy Reserves.

"Good Morning,

You recently made an inquiry online about Navy Reserve Medical Nursing Opportunities. The Navy Reserve requires a Bachelor's degree (BSN) from an accredited USA school or a Master of Science in Nursing from an accredited USA school. Nursing requires you be USA citizen, have no criminal history, and have no disqualifying health concerns. You just also have at least three months work experience in a hospital setting.

The Navy Reserve is a part time opportunity, which requires two days per month and 12 days per year active duty training per year service.

Being a Navy Nurse is truly a higher calling. If you qualify, you may be eligible for a sign on bonus. We also offer flexible schedules, commissary and exchange benefits, training, state of the art health care and rewarding experiences you will not find anywhere else in Nursing.

You will be a commissioned officer in the US Navy and be treated as the professional you are.
