RAF nursing Watch
firstly a quick overview about myself: I am in 6.1 at the moment and i am taking psychology, biology, English and Business and the two careers options that i have been interested in is law and nursing.
My uncle is in the RAF and he was telling me how you can nurse in the RAF or in the armed forces in general, he said that it would suit my personality because im energetic and a fast thinker. so i did some research,
you can join as a student after A2 and do your 3 year course in adult nursing in Birmingham ( i live outside Birmingham) and then you do placements in the NHS and in armed forces bases in the UK, and then after you get your degree you get moved into the RAF as a registered nurse,
i like the idea of helping the people who fight for out country and i like the thought of it being fast and that you would need a lot of ad-reline but i don't know if its better to get my degree in nursing at uni and then apply or apply after a2,
the nearest RAF career office is about 30 minutes away so i need to go there one day after school (6form) to talk to them,
but do you have any ideas?
( i also saw that if i did opt for law that after gaining my degree and 2 years experience i could enter the RAF as a officer but im not sure)
