Air Force Airmen are stationed around the world, and they, along with their families, need the same medical care as civilians. As an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, you'll provide that care just as you do now but with some significant difference. For starters, you'll be an officer in the U.S. Air Force, which means you'll immediately command respect from doctors, colleagues and patients. Additionally, any seniority you accrue will go with you wherever you go — no starting over. You'll also be a leader, work with the latest equipment and have the opportunity to further your training and education.
To ease your transition into the Air Force, you'll enter a five-week training regimen designed to educate you on the ways of both the military and military healthcare. You'll participate in physical conditioning five days a week, leadership training and classroom studies.
