To the editor:
As May is a month which recognizes nurses, I would like to highlight a career that I feel is very valuable in nursing.
My sister, Sara Cheaney Shaffer, is a commander in the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps. She currently is stationed at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. She has been serving in the Navy Nurse Corps for 16 years.
She is an OB nurse midwife and family nurse practitioner. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees through the Navy. She has had many rewarding experiences in the Navy Nurse Corps.
