Navy Nurse Corps – Reserve Officer


Linda Elias-Thomas – My role as a Navy Reserve nurse is to be physically ready and medically ready to be deployed. I’m the training officer in my unit. I help maintain readiness for the Marines and the Reserves that are at the Reserve Center. Brian Biggie – I was exposed to Navy Nurse Corps Officers while I was on Active Duty and as soon as I met them I knew that I wanted to be part of that elite community. Linda Elias-Thomas – As a Reservist, I do part-time drilling one weekend a month and then two weeks out of the year I do Active Duty training. I am Lieutenant Linda Elias-Thomas, a registered nurse in the Navy Reserve. I am Lieutenant Junior Grade Brian Biggie. I am a Registered Nurse in the Navy Reserve. Brian Biggie – My biggest challenge being a Nurse in the Navy Reserve, is navigating the complexities of my mission here. My responsibilities at home as a father a husband and also my professional career at Toledo Hospital and director of a 52 bed emergency department. Linda Elias-Thomas – I have many hats in my civilian job. I am the Safety Director at a medical center. I also do floor nursing, which is very similar to med surg nursing. I do infection control. And I also train nursing assistants. Brian Biggie – I have an administrative role that allows me to prepare and take care of Sailors in Garrison at the Individual Navy Operational Support Commands throughout the country to get them up to speed prior to their deployments. Linda Elias-Thomas – I feel like I’m part of something bigger being in the Navy, not just my little corner of the world. It’s global. Brian Biggie – I would definitely say that the Navy Reserve prepares you for the opportunities today and the challenges tomorrow. Linda Elias-Thomas – The Navy offers an abundance of training. That is one of the greatest perks of the Navy, the education, and it’s free. It’s there if you want it. Brian Biggie – They provide money for school, educational opportunities, a sense of purpose, a sense of sacrifice. Linda Elias-Thomas – The Navy in general has enabled me to travel to meet a lot of interesting people that have the same drive that I have; they love the Navy, they love the United States, and they care about other people. Brian Biggie – It pretty much embodies everything that’s good about people and what’s good about this country. Linda Elias-Thomas – The advice I would give anyone contemplating joining the Navy, would be one word – join. Brian Biggie – I love it. Twenty-one years in, everyday I’m glad that I joined.

    At first, I was like "That's the oldest Lieutenant (jg) I've ever seen!"

    Then I saw the enlisted FMF badge and all those ribbons.

    Prior enlisted officers FTW.

    How hard is it for women to get an NROTC scholarship??? It's my goal at this point. Would being a girl give me an advantage?

    If I wanted to join right out of high school, go to boot camp, and join the navy reserve to carry me through nursing school, would I have to pick a different MOS because I wouldn't be a nurse yet?
