Abstract:

New military nurse practitioners NPs must endure bilateral transitions, developing proficiency in two professional roles simultaneously, that of NP and that of military officer. A difficult transition period can impact both confidence and competence of the novice NP may influence patient safety, job satisfaction and turn over, leading to a reduction in the supply of qualified military NPs in the work force. The purpose of this investigation is to explore US military active duty NPs transition experiences in the military health care setting.
