Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the practice effectiveness of Army Nurse Corps first level clinicians in terms of quantity and quality of services provided and to assess patient acceptance of nurse clinicians as primary health care providers. The methodology involved a survey by questionnaires, on-site interviews of nurses and physicians, a record audit, a telephone consultation tally, and encounter records, to determine the types of services provided, workload, characteristics of the patient population, professional and role development, and patient acceptance of the nurse clinician as a primary care giver. The sample surveyed consisted of 96 nurse clinicians in five clinical specialties at 14 medical treatment facilities, the chief nurses of these facilities and a representative sample of patients of the nurse clinicians. These data were collected in September, October, and November 1973.
