Today's Airmen face some unique stresses and mental challenges. As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), you'll help them face and overcome these while you gain valuable experience unavailable in civilian practice. And since you'll enter the Air Force as an officer you'll have the immediate respect of both your peers and your patients.
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.
