This paper explains that there are around 11,000 nurses in the military services with many opportunities to make a successful career in military nursing. The author points out that a typical career path for a new military nurse begins under close supervision, but he or she can expect to become a nurse supervisor specializing as a patient care coordinator, a charge nurse or a staff nurse or even a director of nurses within a hospital. The paper relates that, although the nursing role in the military or in civilian life are quite similar, major differences are that, in the military, there is a greater ability to receive financial assistance while training and then to choose specific job placements after successful completion of BSN nursing degree although the student must commit to a three-years active duty after completion of the degree.

From the Paper:

"Obviously, choosing a military career of any type comes with its good points and bad points. Take into consideration that a military nurse could face working during a war. He or she could faced with possible capture and torture during a war or at the very least be forced to care for the enemy. This career choice also requires continuing education--to stay on top of your field. If the nurse wants to specialize, this too requires further education, all of which are costly choices. The nursing career is one that should be chosen by a person that loves other people and helping to make other people healthy and well."
