It’s no surprise that professional nursing is a popular career choice for many military medics. Given the vast knowledge and valuable skills gained in the field, applying them in civilian life can be a great transition.

Continuing from military medic to RN studies is a wise and well-suited pursuit. That said, this career path is not without its challenges. By anticipating the most common obstacles faced by veteran nursing students, we can help you smoothly and efficiently transition from military medic to registered nurse.

91大神 offers multiple nursing programs, each designed to help students achieve their unique objectives.

Here are the most important considerations for moving from a role as a military medic to an RN and developing long-term career goals.

Military Nursing vs. Civilian Nursing

While there certainly are differences between military and civilian nursing, the training and experience acquired in the field can make the transition from military medic to RN student easier. Many of the qualities that make a good military medic are highly transferable to succeeding as a registered nurse.

Some of the most advantageous qualities often held by individuals who opt for the military medic to RN career path include:

  • Unwavering professionalism with the ability to stay calm under pressure.
  • Punctuality, practice, and comfort with operating in a fast-paced setting.
  • A solid understanding of life-saving techniques and a firm foundation of routine healthcare practices.
  •  Highly adaptable, collaborative team players who are skilled at following precise orders and detailed instructions.
  • Strong, proactive leaders with proven time management skills.

 

4 Tips for a Successful Transition

For a more successful transition from military medic to RN studies, consider the following steps and tips:

  1. Thoroughly research the requirements, curriculum, and future careers for each nursing program under consideration.
  2. Evaluate personal needs and future career goals.
  3. Apply established teamwork skills to recreational and educational activities wherever possible.
  4. Pursue professional advice, assistance, and other student resources offered at your nursing school or from other institutions and organizations available to you.

Overall, military medics tend to make incredible assets for civilian medical healthcare teams. It’s important, though, to know what the two nursing fields share and what sets them apart to more successfully adjust from the norms of a military medic to RN life.

Finding the Right Program

Prior to making any decisions, it’s imperative to first evaluate various nursing school and program options to properly determine which direction and coursework will be best.

It may also be helpful to consider the following inquiries:

  • What program length are you prepared to commit to?
  • Do you currently meet the entry requirements? If not, what are the next steps?
  • What are the associated costs for each nursing school program? And what additional resources exist to assist active military members and veterans?
  • What career path sounds most fulfilling to you? And will this coursework provide adequate preparation for the specific desired profession?

Assessing these questions early on will help prospective students make the smartest educational decisions in their military medic to RN journey.

Benefits of Becoming an RN

One upside to continuing with nursing school after serving as a military medic is the range of benefits available to make higher education more accessible for veterans.

From financial aid options for those who qualify like federal grants to the targeted application of funds, various provisions may be available to make the educational pursuits of veterans more feasible and less daunting to attain.

Veteran Benefits are designed to reduce the financial burden on students who have served in the military, and a wealth of resources exist to ease the transition from military medic to RN studies. Eligibility is determined by several factors, and benefits may be limited to certain campus locations.
