    Yes, depth perception is a requirement as well as dental exams. You might be able to get a waiver.
  2. Flight Nursing in Air Force Reserves

    Well, after the 10 months to 1 year of being on active duty orders, you still have to complete 15 days of AT (Active Training) days per year while completely the minimum of 2 hours every 90 days which won't keep you qualified. Many individuals had to...

    Congrats on the commission! I have been in since 2016 and I love it! Thank you for updating us on current COVID conditions in regards to training. I want to emphasize that the bonus will only start AFTER you are fully qualified as a flight nurse so f...

    Deployments for flight nurses last only 4 months and it is a volunteer basis (at least at our squadron). Depends on where you deploy to but technology is pretty good so internet calling/FaceTime should be an issue. Yes, you will be placed on Active ...
  8. Flight Nursing in Air Force Reserves

    I am. Commissioned in 2016, qualified in 2017 and deployed currently. They have active-duty flight nurses but you can't only stay in that position for a limited time compared to the reserves which is a career choice.

    That is what I'm thinking also but I commissioned a month before my two years and I was a 2LT. At first it sucked but I plan on doing 20 years so gives me more time to make rank and complete 20+ years.

  14. Title 38? How is this a good thing??

    The starting salary is determined by the nursing board and with 13 years with no MSN, it would definitely be around Nurse 2 Step 5-7...but you have to prove to them.
  15. Title 38? How is this a good thing??

    Well, I've been a nurse for 5 years and been with the VA for 9 years. They paid for my BSN (and paid me a salary while in school) with a guaranteed job afterwards and are paying for part of my MSN. Their benefits/retirement is great, paid leave (earn...
