As a Registered Nurse Adult (RN(A)), within the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service (PMRAFNS) having completed the Basic Recruit Training Course (BRTC) at RAF Halton, you will be assigned to work within one of the Joint Hospital Groups (JHGs) or alternatively the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM). These hospitals are collectively known as secondary healthcare and you will be required to undertake at least one tour of duty (24 - 36 months) to consolidate the skills and knowledge obtained during your undergraduate training, also gaining Service specific training as required for your deployed role.
The RAF Medical Reserve recruits Nurses from a wide range of clinical specialities. If you work in any of the following clinical areas: Primary Health Care, Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Burns and Plastics, acute general Medical and Surgical wards and Mental Health we would like to hear from you. If successful in selection, you will be working within a highly motivated team of nurses and part of a wider multidisciplinary clinical team. As a nurse you could deploy on Operations sometimes in austere and challenging conditions.
RAF Nurses, Regular and Reserve provide the highest standards of patient care in a variety of clinical surroundings. You’ll contribute to delivering cutting edge military medicine and learn to adapt your practice to deliver nursing care in a wide range of challenging settings. As a nurse there may also be the opportunity to undertake Aeromedical Evacuation training to ensure you’ll be able to operate in the clinically challenging environment of flying at altitude.
