Ms.Nick was in the Air Force from 1994-1998. After basic training, she went to Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas to complete training as a medical specialist. A medical specialist works in clinics and in the hospital and does many things that a nurse would do. I also was trained and was a certified EMT. After leaving Sheppard AFB, she was stationed at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. This is the second largest hospital in the Air Force, and they served veterans from Kentucky, West Virginia, and Illinios. While at Wright-Patterson, I worked on a post-surgical unit for a few years and then I later worked in the Primary Care Clinic. she had many duties, from drawing blood to starting IV's.
