BRING BETTER CARE TO HEALTHCARE
Nurses are integral to the top-rate healthcare we provide to our Airmen and their families, and in the Air Force, they’re treated as essential members to the healthcare team. Our Nurses are respected Officers in the Air Force and provide their personal care in state-of-the-art medical facilities or aeromedical evacuation units around the world.
