Navy Nurse Corps Promotion During War: The Deployment Effect
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
This study examines factors affecting promotion of Navy Nurses from 2001 to 2010. The objective of the study is to identify important service and educational factors that affect promotion in a wartime environment. The study finds that deployment increases the probability of promotion to Lieutenant Commander, but does not have a significant effect on promotion to Commander or Captain. Other factors affecting the promotion to Lieutenant Commander are critical wartime specialties and highest education in nursing. For Lieutenants, in addition to these factors, experience serving in a variety of locations positively affected promotion to Lieutenant Commander. As expected, advanced degrees positively affect the probability of promotion to Commander and Captain, while overseas assignments appear to have a negative impact on promotion to Commander. The study also finds that being a Nurse Practitioner or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist positively affects promotion across all ranks. Gender does not appear to be a significant determinant of promotion in any of the models.
