My wife is looking to get in touch with someone who has worked in nursing while their spouse was at Rucker.

Thanks all

If you count ex-wives and long after flight school?

My wife dressed up in a nurse outfit for my birthday once. Does that count?

My wife is looking at the idea of just going PRN with the company that she is currently with and coming back home once a month to pick up a few shifts. She may also go PRN in Alabama once we get settled. Itll keep her license current in our home state and keep her job secure for when we move back from Rucker.

I know that service members have their civilian jobs protected under USERRA, but I cant find anything that would legally protect my wifes job while we are at Rucker.

There are currently no federal laws that protect spouse employment. Although if you google Lakesha Cole shes been leading the fight up at congress.

My wife get's her BSN in December. She is in an accelerated Second bachelors/Masters NP program, but she is planning on taking a year off to work when we move down before starting the Masters part. She is looking into online options through her school to continue on the masters track. The salary is close to double once she has that done. That said, she'll probably be moving down to AL with no nurse-work experience (though she has 5+ years of clinical hospital experience and has close to a 4.0 in her nursing program). Just not sure what the employment opportunities are like down there.

Plenty of opportunity, I believe. The two hospitals in Dothan seem to be advertising frequently on the radio for nurses. My wife got on as an SLP at a nursing home here a year removed from getting her masters degree.

Do you happen to know what the pay they advertise is? Up here nurses seem to start at 35 or so an hour.

Cool thanks. Looks like, either way, she'll find work.
