I am a qualified nurse in the QA's and was just wondering if the navy has any Advanced Nurse Practitioners? If there are, how does one become one or is it a role reserved for officers? I'm in the army and talking to colleagues there is this general belief that even if it were possible to become one in the army, I would probably have to transfer to the navy or RAF to get the opportunity to become one as these branches are more supportive of their nurses personal career development. I don't know how far true this is so please correct me if I'm wrong. Any advice will be welcome.
