Air Force RN

Basic through "Chief Nurse", Clinical nursing is a backbone to any medical facility. Providing care, support, and interventions to patients to supporting providers in a clinical setting and more! Basic Nurse is based on years of experience, 7 years before progressing to Mid-Level nurse. "Chief Nurse" is a time requirement of 14+ years. There are also Chief Nurses, a duty assignment based on years and experience and given significant leadership roles. With the variety of nursing experiences possible, any nurse should be able to find their "spot"

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).
