Ok, so graduation for bachelor's degree #2 is next week, and I really don't want to be a full-time nurse. Yep, I said it. I'd rather remain a cop, and I'm not ashamed of it. I'm happy in doing what I know how to do and doing it well. This fits me better. That said, I've always had a military itch that I've never scratched. What are the odds of getting a nurse slot in some reserve or guard unit in my state when I'm not working as one full-time? I've been wondering about this for a while now, and I think the role of a part-time military officer / nurse would better suit me than punching a clock in a civilian hospital for a living. I also think it'd be interesting to do something completely separate than what I do now if I follow up on this pursuit and get into the reserve or guard as an officer, i.e. be a nurse and not something investigative, operational, or intel related. I'd like to make some use of the nursing degree and license, be able to maintain it, and put it to work with the armed forces. I don't mind getting deployed, I don't mind the monthly drill, etc. That's not a big deal to me, and law enforcement is typically accustomed to officers doing that so being able to do it in my current job would be easy. At one time, I didn't want a commitment, which is why I never got into it all before, but I look back now and see that if I had gone to OCS or something when I first finished college that I'd be in a remarkable position now. I am a stellar police officer (and formerly a supervisor before going back to school), made good grades in the nursing program, got invited into Sigma Theta Tau, used to be a paramedic, etc. I'm also over 30 but very healthy.What say you?
