Over the last three years, the United States Air Force USAF has experienced increasing difficulty in retaining sufficient numbers of its Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists CRNAs to meet peace-time requirements Prather, 1988. The primary purpose of this research project was to identify the issues associated with the decision of many former USAF CRNAs to discontinue their military careers prior to meeting retirement criteria and opt for anesthesia nursing practice in a non-military setting. An additional goal is to compile this samples recommendations for the Nurse Corps aimed at proving the work satisfaction of the CRNAs who are currently practicing in the United States Air Force.
