Abstract:

A descriptive survey was conducted to determine whether stressful situations were experienced by Air Force Nurses recently graduated from pre-service baccalaureate programs in nursing during their first twelve 12 months on active duty and within their first eighteen 18 months in nursing and if they occurred, could the nurse identify them using critical incident technique. Subjects were Air Force Nurses from general hospitals, regional hospitals, and medical centers of the United States Air Force who met the prescribed criteria, were randomly selected by the Directors of Nursing Services, and agreed to participate in this study. The stressful situations were identified by means of an open-ended questionnaire administered at Air Force medical facilities throughout the continental limits of the United States.
