Minimum Education Requirement:
Bachelor's or Master's degree in Nursing from a school accredited by the NLN or CCNE
As you can imagine, being an Emergency Room Nurse in the Air Force can be a bit different than in a civilian setting. Stateside, the cases will be similar to the ones you see now. But if you go overseas, you could be called on to handle cases that push your skills to the limit and beyond. Aside from professional challenges and growth, you'll also be commissioned as an officer, meaning you'll receive instant respect from doctors and patients alike.
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.
