Once they are on-the-job, they will receive training that depends on whether they are new or experienced nurses. Military nurses not only gain expertise, but also skills while they are on-the-job.
One of the biggest skills that they learn is how to be a leader. Salary for Military nurses depends on the ranking of each individual and can be anywhere around $1,500 to $15,500. With some commissioned nurses receiving a large signing bonuses ranging from $30,000 to $50,000.
