Not only do physicians obtain automatic commission as officers in the armed forces. Nurses make up an enormous contingent, and increasingly so. After this appointment, I see not only an increase in nursing representation, but also a greater inclusion of female providers in general.

Maj. Gen. Patricia Horoho would become the first nurse and the first woman to serve as the Army Surgeon General if the Senate confirms her nomination and simultaneous promotion to lieutenant general, which were announced by Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday.

Major Horoho also served as a medic to the infirmed immediately following the attack on 9/11. | LINK
