I was hoping some of my fellow USAF members here, or even some of the other active members here could help me out on this one. I’m a A1C in the Air Force currently in tech school for surgical services. I’m planning ahead (yes I know that I must complete tech school and the CDC’s first) and researching career options at the moment.
Prior to enlisting to the USAF I had completed about 1/3 of nursing school (RN). While I was planning on being Air Force anyways when I ran out of money during the end of one of the semesters I was prompted to sign up earlier than I planned. I enlisted under a general contract and am now happily learning the ways of a surgical tech….but I’m still ambitious enough to want to finish that RN degree and possibly (do I dare say…) earn a commission. I have all my general education classes finished.
So I was wondering what would be the best way to go about earning my RN degree and becoming an officer? Would it be best to go civilian and try apply to OTS, or does the Air Force have any programs I could enter or use? Should I look for ROTC despite being active duty?
Basically I would like your opinion on the best way to go about gaining this (while still remembering I am an active duty surgical tech). Is there any programs I should be looking into, speaking to people about, etc.
