Air Force Reserve Nurse Training Exercise(01:52)
At McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey, Air Force Reserve Capt. Dennis Castro and his unit prep an aircraft and simulate loading an injured passenger. Castro is a flight nurse, which means he is responsible for keeping patients stable while they are being evacuated or transported from one location to another.
The Air Force Reserve offers several benefits for health care professionals, including student loan repayment and advanced training opportunities. In return, health care professionals serve close to home on a part-time basis, and they drill regularly so their skills remain strong.
