Hello to all,
I am a current BSN student with 6 months left!! woohoo! Anyway, I live in a large military city with a large joint base hospital. I am weighing my options of joining the U.S. military as an officer or applying to the hospital as a GS employee. I do have a contact that can get me in at the hospital as a GS; however I do plan on moving forward with a midwifery degree soon. My main questions and concerns are as follows: *note, thank you in advance for answering my questions 🙂 *
1. As far as paid tuition is concerned; the military offers paid cont. ED funds, but as a GS employee are there any tuition/scholarships available for nurses? If so, can I please have the details of how they work and for how much?
2. I am aware that I could more than likely end up moving away from my city; which I am okay with, but is there any lead way possible for me to stay and work at the joint base hospital here?
3. I don't mean to make this so much about money but I would like information of the pay grade of military officer VS GS employee.
4. If you feel there is any other great and valuable information I could use please add it! I am here to learn!
