What is life like as a Hospital Corpsman in the NAVY?!! ANSWER PLEASE!?

I really wanted to get Aviation Ordnance, I wanted to work in Aviation, and I wanted to experience life on a flight deck, the LAST job I wanted was HM (Hospital Corpsman) I'm a Nursing Assistant now, and mainly don't want to do it because my father is pushing the medical field on me so bad because "that is all you can do in this economy" But, that is the only job they had available for me, so I took it, and I don't think I'll be bad at it, I absolutely LOVE to help people, it makes me feel good to help people, I'm just sad I'm not going to get to experience life on a flight deck while on deployments, and I see what the nurses do at work ( I work at a nursing home) And it looks so boring! I wanted a job that was exciting, and gave me some adrenalin..but, I have HM, so what is life like as a Hospital Corpsman...which is basically a nurse right?? Like what is a daily day like while on shore duty, and on a ship at sea duty?? By the way, I plan to stay in till I retire out. So this is a long term career. AND ALSO, females CANNOT go with marines an be a combat medic!! I keep getting that answer, and Females cannot do that. I no that, I've read them websites, I want to know what a DAILY DAY is like. On ship, and on shore.

Well look into SAR that's Search and Rescue......US Navy Rescue Swimmer....air crewman's candidate school....get your butt into a helicopter squadron or a fixed wing squadron if you want carrier/sea duty...I'll tell ya right now duty on a smaller ship is better...better food, better liberty, smaller ports-of-call...

HM is not a nurse. The Navy has Registered Nurses who are all Officers with BSN degrees... More

females can go with marines, you will be deployed to a stationary position. My dad is a HM and he LOVES his job, you can still be an Aviation Corpsman
