In the military, a medic receive specialized training that provide skill/knowledge that include skill-sets that is comparable to an LVN. The 12-month requirement for bedside does not equate to CNA duties. Depending on branch of service and duty location - medics can be seen doing NGT, IV, foleys, EKGs, cast/splints, etc. Advance skills obtained for some of these medics provide them to work independently (within protocols) that have them diagnosing, treating, and prescribing.
- So, when presenting military credentials of experience to the board, the submitter provides the skill-knowledge/skill-sets that is gained from AT LEAST 12 months beside experience to be considered.
