Sorry for asking all these questions but i have seen the other posts and they donât seem to answer any of the questions i have cheers for your help am just starting my 3rd year in my nursing degree and i will end when am 22 nearly 23. You all seem to say that one should wait two years and join as an officer but i feel that being so young and having just two years of work under my belt i would be naf and prob never get selected anyway. also i love the practical side so doing paper work all day is not what am looking for ( i know we all have loads of it to do anyway but i donât mind that stuff in little bites) i aim to be a charge nurse when am around 30-35 coz then i have lived a bit, am in the TA at the moment and i love every moment as a QA but i feel that if i just stay in the ta and work in the nhs my life will drag a bit. So my questions are: do you think am right in joining straight after i end my degree (its what a really want to do but i want to make sure itâs the right way to go) is the army better than the NHS ( i understand that all places have fools and issues at work so you just have to get over it) will i actual get to travel even if its just the uk at the start ( will i get to go abroad, if so will it be a lot or once in a blue moon) do you actually like your jobs (many in the NHS hate it , great moral booster for me lol) will i get to be a officer in 10 years ( i know it counts on your quality as a person, skill and sucking up ) if i like the practical side is it better for me to be a nco .. like a sg or wo (what is there role plz) how much of your pay actually goes into the bank (not that pay if a major thing but it helps ) when working in the uk is it true you end up in NHS units . Where do you live and are they respectful even thou your QA not civvy ok last question not to be sexist or anything but as a straight male will i get respect as a nurse.. i find i get mothered a lot by staff on the NHS which can be helpful but makes me feel like a kid .. i would rather be bossed around but respected than treated like a pet. How many lads are there in the QA i tell a lie one more will i also get they chance to improve my skills as much as the propaganda says (how much of the propaganda is bull) thanks for your help.. Sorry there are so many questions but i think this is the only place i will gain a view that isnât bias (he hopes) thanks for your help..
