Best parts of having this specialty
Variety. The military moves you to where they need you. Hopefully, you will enjoy it. If not, sometimes you can petition to move to a different area. Regardless, if you stay in long enough, you will come out with a diverse level of experience...and maybe have figured out a "specialty"
Worst parts of having this specialty
Be prepared for the potential of shift work. Depending on your frame of mind, deployments (I enjoyed them!). You will NOT sit back on your laurels and do nothing. Regardless of where you go.
Advice on how to transfer to this specialty
However you do it....it requires an RN, BSN for the military. Valid NCLEX and board licensure from any state and I believe Porto Rico (Philippines may also qualify, but speak to the recruiters to verify).
