Corpsmen are Navy paramedics, to simplify it. They are also enlisted personell only, while Nurses are Officers, so these women are not nurses. The person who raised the red flag thought they were nurses because was not aware of what a corpsman did, according to one article I read. As a midshipmen (officer in training) nursing student who resides in Jacksonville, and learned about it in clinical, all of the actual RNs around here are horrified! Please don't let this terrible behavior reflect badly on your views of Navy Nursing or Jacksonville!
