is it possible for me to become a surgical nurse and then enlist in the coast guard?
There are a few Coast Guard Physician Assistants..... but that's all I know about.
LITS, your comment reminded me of a PHS dentist I met about 8 years ago, but as she was detailed to the CG, she wore a CG uniform. Complete surprise. See the link below about CG-PHS - interesting to read, as I had very little awareness of the close connection.
And as for the PAs, I learned about them - good to know if that pops up around SAF again.
