What are the advantages and disadvantages of becoming a military nurse?
Dear Donna replies:
Read a short profile on military nursing at www.nurse.com/students/CareersInNursing/CareerAlternatives/MN.htm. Find additional information and resources at www.discovernursing.com/jnj-specialtyID_250-dsc-specialty_detail.aspx.
Keep in mind you can work in military facilities as a civilian employee. Almost every military base uses civilian nurse employees. Simply identify those bases in your area and contact the human resources department. Its that easy. If youre not sure where the bases are, just do an Internet search for military bases in [your state]. You will often find a link on their Web sites for civilian employment.
