Bafelly, in case you are looking at flight too, know that AF flight nursing is not the same thing as civilian flight nursing. The AF has different types of flight crews for different things, unlike the 1-size fits all civilian role.

AF flight nursing is really more focused on the plane and the safety of passengers and crew. Your patients are all stable and most are walkie talkies. The fact that it requires a few years of acute care experience is a bit misleading. Flight nursing is a full time specialty.

There are other teams, such as CCATT, that take the sicker, less stable patients. CCATT is typically a part time gig. You often do it for a few months and then go back to your ICU.
