    Airforce Nursing 2011

    Go here: http://www.airforce.com/contact-us/recruiter-locator/ Find a recruiter and talk to one. This is the best way to get the information you're looking for. A USAF healthcare recruiter will have the most accurate and up to date information regarding all the questions you have. The Air Force is as tight as ever, but they still accept nurses every year.

    ER peer interviews? Help please!!

    I've had two of these which consisted of the manager walking through the ED trying to grab whoever wasn't busy. I was in the interview for 2 minutes before they called a trauma overhead and everyone left.

    Mass casualty incidents

    Each hospital has their own disaster plan and protocols set in place. Usually the only time you'll hear about it is during your orientation or a drill.

    To the cynical nurse

    How are you naive if you're not the one ordering the medication? Who cares as long as it shuts them up while your gritting your teeth to the tune of "LEVEL ONE TRAUMA ETA NOW."

    Per Diem Not for me

    I love per diem! I have per diem jobs at two different hospitals. One guarantees me 24 hours a month with the flexibility to bid on extra shifts within my unit. The other guarantees me 16 hours a month with the ability to bid on extra shifts within my unit, as well as identical units in all of its sister hospitals. So far I've worked as little as 40 hours a month, and as much 160 hours a month.
