    Hello!

    I'll be starting my training as an adult nurse at KCL in September and I'm really interested in a future career with the RAF.

    I've had a look online and can see plenty of info for student nurses who are doing their degree with the RAF/Birmingham uni, but nothing about being a student nurse on a reserve basis - is there such a thing, or would I apply as standard reserve?

    Would really appreciate hearing from any nursing/med/healthcare students who are in the RAF!

    I know that nursing students can join the army reserves, but I've not head much about it for the RAF. I think it might be an idea to pop to a careers office or give the RAF recruitment guys a call and see if they have a similar role fo you. The nearest place to you in London where they train would be RAF Northolt.

    4626 does take student nurses as i suspect do the other RAFMS units that are mainly reservists... i'm not sure how clear the 'career pathway' is for civvie student nurses in the reserve forces these days, but in the past it has been rather muddled .
