    I'm very interested in joining the army as a nurse and so have been looking at the student nurse role, however I can't seem to find any info on how long you have to serve after completing the degree? Does anyone know/is anyone doing at this moment in time? Cheers!!

    I believe it's a four year return of service, provided you don't do any further courses that require a return of service.

    I'm at the very start of applying, I've submitted my medical records and basic information but that's as far as I've got. Are you in the army yourself?

    That's cool. Sadly I got rejected from the army on medical grounds so it doesn't really matter now I might try again in a couple of years...who knows.

    Are you still going to try for nursing without being in the army?
