Abstract : The purpose of this study was to assess the introductory training needs of Navy Nurse Corps (NC) officers who care for inpatients in the specialties of orthopedics, obstetrics/newborn, and psychiatry. The scope was limited to 25 small and medium-sized inpatient medical treatment facilities stateside and overseas. The survey identified for each specialty: the basic entry-level tasks/knowledge/skills;the level of training needed to perform these tasks and skills; and how well nurses performed these tasks and skills. Additional training issue questions addressed three areas: support and encouragement for specialty training; reported training levels; and patient care coverage in more than one specialty area. Findings support the Navy Medical Department's concern for identifying methodologies for providing entry level training for NC officers in these specialties.
