Should I join the navy or the air force or should I stay in college?

I'm 20 years old on my second year of college and I'm thinking about joining the navy or the air force to become a nurse.

You can't become a nurse in the military unless you have a full nursing degree. So stay in school. But go ahead and contact some MEDICAL recruiters. They may be able to help you with funding for your remaining two years in exchange for a few years of military service.
