Military nurses provide health care treatment to U.S. military personnel while they are at war and when they are at home. Some military nurses are stationed on US. Naval ships and some work in countries where the U.S. is engaged in military operations. The most extreme work environment for a military nurse is in the middle of an active war zone where they are set up to provide immediate medical attention to soldiers who are wounded in battle. Military nurses also find employment in military hospitals and veterans hospitals throughout the country. Many nurses choose to become military nurses to have the opportunity to travel or work aboard a U.S. Army ship or Navy vessel. A military nurse is trained to perform all of the typical duties of a registered nurse, including treatment of wounds, diagnosis of symptoms, pain management, administering medicine, assisting in surgical procedures, checking vital sings and providing medical advice to patients.
