This is my first post on this board! I am currently halfway through my RN training and I'm also an LPN with 0 years of experience. I entered LPN school in 2007 when it seemed as though anyone with the title nurse was guaranteed a job. As soon as I graduated I realized most of the job ads were for "LPN's with 2+ years of experience or RN's". Now that I'm a year away from graduating it seems most job ads are for "RN's with 2+ years of experience or BSN's"
I am married to a new Marine and foresee living on a base as soon as I am out of nursing school. My questions are these:
1. I'm curious to hear from other nurses who are married to men in the military and how that affected their search for employment.
2. If there is hospital on base, is any hiring preference given to spouses of the men stationed there? (maybe I'm naive to think that...)
