Most of us have seen the popular television shows M.A.S.H and China Beach, but what does it really take to become a military nurse?
Nurses in uniform are not a new part of the military. They’ve been a part of the armed services for about a hundred years. What most people don’t know is that nurses in the military have rank and can achieve honors similar to their compatriots in uniform. Nurses are involved in every branch of the United States military and some do serve on the combat front lines in military hospitals and field units.
