 Military Info
The military offers a GI Bill to military members.  The GI Bill benefits include financial coverage of an education for a military member or military family member.  Military members can choose to use their GI Bill to continue their education within the military or to prepare for a career outside of the military as a civilian.  Pursuing a career as a registered nurse would offer a military member the opportunity to practice in the healthcare setting using skills that were acquired in military training such as, quick and confident decision making, long hours on your feet, endurance, and the desire to help and protect others.  Skills of a registered nurse can be utilized in the Air Force, Army, Coastguard or Navy.
