Retired Army Nurse corps officers RANCs are among those individuals whose critical skills would be needed in the event of a mobilization. Therefore, it was deemed appropriate to survey those individuals eligible for recall to ascertain their personal and professional readiness, as well as the attitudes, opinions, needs, and concerns regarding mobilization. The study findings have potential implications for Army Nurse Corps ANC leaders in program and policy development, strategic planning, and formulating readiness plans. The population studied consisted of all Regular Army RA, Army of the United States AUS, or Army Reserve National Guard ARNGretired members of the ANC below the age of 60 years, medically or nonmedically retired, and on record with the Army Reserve Personnel Center ARPERCEN, St. Louis, Missouri. A mail survey developed specifically for the study was sent to 748 subjects who met the aforementioned eligibility criteria.
