Abstract : The purpose of this study was to identify components of job satisfaction of Army CRNAs and their relationship to turnover. There is a shortage of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) in the Army. Presently, only 80% of the allocated CRNA slots are filled. If the annual attrition rate continues to average 25-30 CRNAs, and the Army continues to produce 30-35 CRNAs per year, there will only be an average of 5-10 new CRNAs annually. The ability to perform the peacetime and wartime mission must not be compromised by a shortage of CRNAs. The descriptive/exploratory design utilized demographics and a 57-item questionnaire utilized by Cowan (1995) and Stamps (1997).
