military nurse salary in ghana

A military nurse is a registered nurse who is also enlisted in one of the branches of the military, serving their country by providing medical care to other military personnel. Of course, the army nurses in areas where they are exposed to blood and guts wear clean scrubs and another surgical garb.


In parades, they wear their dress uniforms, and in basic clinics where blood and guts are not the norms, I’m sure they wear their ‘proper uniform’ as their position requires. Most professional militaries employ specialized military nurses. They are often organized as distinct nursing corps.
