It will be a while before I'm qualified, but I'm allowed to daydream, so I'd like your views in this. Here goes: After little over a decade in the (Dutch) Infantry I'm now being sponsored by the Army to retrain as a nurse. It's a four year course crammed into two-and-a-half years and after that I'll be thought all sorts of snacks that the Army wants its nurses to have. First line medicine; out of area nursing and the ambulance nurses course are most prominent. Sounds terrific, doesn't it? I'm enjoying myself immensely even though I'm now doing an internship in a civilian PG ward... In one and a half years I'm told that I'll get a little say in my first posting as a nurse. What should I choose? A brigade medical unit or a manoeuvre unit because I have Infantry experience and can handle myself there; or a field hospital or ambulance company because it'll be my first posting as a nurse? My fellow students (about a third of them ex-inf or cav with a sprinkling of engineers and logistics) and I can't find a fitting answer to that. Thoughts?
