    I have been working at U.S. Army Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    While In the Army as a LPN, I have been exposed to many differant experiences in many differant hospitals. I have cared for paitents ranging from infants to geriatric. I have gained much experience in the clinical and in- patient settings. It was an amzing experience and I learned so much from all the staff I worked with.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of when it comes to the Army is all the running and the ruck marching. Physical training and working as a nurse can cause alot of stress to your body.

    I have been working at U.S. Army Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in the operating room always gives a sense of self satisfaction. The policies are very strict but work for the patient. The pay is decent and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    The leadership styles are what you expect of a military installation. Problem is, the leadership is consistently changing which also mean that there is the possibility of new rules and what I call the initial "example maker". In other words they try to change what doesn't need to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    When allowing for new leadership, make sure they take some classes on military/civilian etiquette.
