She was enlisted in the Air National Guard for 6 years, and just got out as a Senior Airman in July, before being selected for active duty in the Air Force Nurse Corps as an officer. This is her 2nd career. In the Philippines she was first an English teacher, then a principal of an elementary school in Manila. She reinvented herself when she came to the USA.

She will succeed and move up in rank quickly......

My wife from the Philippines is being commissioned as an officer, a Second Lieutenant, on active duty, in the U.S. Air Force, as a Registered Nurse in the Air Force Nurse Corps. We will be leaving to join her at her duty station in Germany this summer, for several years.

Nice, congratulations! So the Air Force still do direct commission for general RNs (no specialty)?

Right. She will be commissioned before going to training. They have to go through Commissioned Officer Training (COT) first, at Maxwell AFB, in Alabama for 5 weeks, then on to her duty station. COT is for nurses, lawyers, chaplain assistants. Yes, just a garden variety RN, MedSurg, that is the slot she is going to fill. She works in neurology right now though, at the hospital.

 

And it will be a mix. Some have no military experience. My wife was in the Air National Guard for 6 years, however. But not health related. She was in Services. She worked in the dining facility at the air base. Got out in July as a Senior Airman.

 

After awhile, she hopes to be sent to school to become a Nurse Practitioner. That is/was our plan B, Family Nurse Practitioner, if somehow the military option fell/falls through for some reason. Right now there is a little glitch of her having admitted to having gestational diabetes 9 years ago when she was pregnant with our son. The surgeon General asked for the paperwork and supposedly is going to sign off on that, because she isn't diabetic now. But if that causes a problem, the heck with it. She will earn double+ the pay and we don't have to go through the hassle of moving then. It really would be a win/win for us. I loved the military and so does she. That's why we are doing this. But if it falls through, I also like stability and the money, and I think she would do awesome as a nurse practitioner.

Just found out this week her waiver for gestational diabetes was approved and signed off on. Green light to go. Background check remaining. Moving forward once again
