Dear Donna,

I have been an RN for almost two years. I'm interested in working on a military base as a civilian nurse. Do you have any advice on how to accomplish this?

Civilian Nurse

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Civilian Nurse,

Almost every military base employs civilian nurses. Simply identify those bases in your area and contact the human resources department. It's that easy. If you're not sure where the bases are, search the Internet for military bases in your state. You often will find a link on their websites for information about civilian employment.

Best wishes,
