I have my BSN with 2 years of med-surg. I have been contemplating Army Nurse Corps for a long while now. I am looking for advice on whether or not to approach a recruiter with the intent for active or reserve duty.

1. Active duty? Will I most likely be deployed overseas? If so, will it be in a combat zone?

2. Reserves? Do I have to relocate? What do you do during your one weekend per month and two weeks per year?

Please...looking for answers from ANC Nurses only. active or retired.

Thank you very much
