I'm just looking for some advice. I'm 22 years old, I am about to start my third year of a nursing diploma, I joined the TA earlier this year (as a QA) and passed out of Pirbright just last week. I now really want to join the regulars as a QA when I'm finished my course. I don't know whether I should try and join as soon as I've finished my course or go on operations with my TA unit in 2014 and then try and go full time. Can anybody advise on which option is best or whether the regular army is taking on nurses at the moment. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
