    Alternatives to military nursing

    Hello all, I’m graduating from my BSCN program this April and I’m looking for advice. A while ago I considered applying to the CAF as a direct-entry nursing officer; however I didn’t like the pay. I have student loans and other financial obligations, and I can’t afford to live off their measly salary. So I had to drop the idea. Any suggestions of alternative pathways that are similar to military nursing? Government/diplomacy/law-enforcement-wise? I couldn’t find any hard info on forensic nursing, or whether nurses can upgrade to a CSI, for example.

    Military nursing officer in Canada?

    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.?
