The men and women of the Air Force aren't just Airmen. They're family members with husbands, wives and children. As an Air Force Pediatric Nurse, you'll help care for the youngest members of the Air Force family both stateside and abroad. You'll work alongside an experienced, professional staff as an officer giving you the respect, privileges and responsibilities associated with your rank. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to continue your training, including working toward becoming a nurse practitioner in your field or another.
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.
