Well, I went to MEPS on Wednesday and had my interview with the Commander and Cheif Nursing Officer today @ McGuire. It went well and they told me they would love to have me. Here is my dilemma. First, they could not understand why at my age of 46 I would ever want to do this, knowing that I am not recieving anything for my service. I of course am interested in helping those who have served and are coming back from war. Problem is McGuire does no patient care at all. In addition to this, I will have to keep my per diem job in the ED, I have been working full time as a nurse educator for the past two years. Since they don't do patient care you must have ongoing patient care in a civilian hospital. My plan was to quit my per diem job once I commissioned, instead it will be like taking on a third job, besides that I am in school. I am very disappointed, it is not what I had hoped for at all. I am starting to rethink my decision.
