Abstract : This report describes the rationale for the study of nurses and the development of the sampling frame and questionnaires for a survey of registered nurses and nursing students. An understanding of the perceptions of the U.S. Army and Army nursing by registered nurses and nursing students is important to U.S. Army policymakers and recruiters. Development of the sampling frame for registered nurses involved the selection of states by cluster sampling, with the selection of respondents randomly within states. Development of the sampling frame for nursing students involved the selection of nursing schools by cluster sampling. The surveys ask a series of questions on education level, employment status, satisfaction with nursing, attitudes about the Army Nurse Corps Active Duty and Reserve programs, and the impact of Desert Storm and similar possible actions on feelings about joining the military.
