    Interested in Army nursing

    I read the Army Reserve website that had some info on nursing careers. It said something about being assigned at a unit near home but you may work at a local civilian hospital, Army hospital nearby, etc. Can someone shed some light on that? Do you get a choice? I believe the nearest Army hospital to me (DFW area) is about 3 1/2 or so hours away (Ft Sill & Ft Hood).

The last time the 228th was mobilized to active duty they deployed to Iraq. The 5501st use to have mission of backfill to BAMC. Also, on most Saturdays of a battle assembly, aka drill weekend, 5501st reservist duty day is at BAMC.

    Thanks for the info!!
