The purpose of this report is to provide profiles of Army Reserve nurses to aid in developing strategies and policies for recruiting, managing, and retaining these essential personnel in the face of a national nurse shortage. Data from DMDC personnel files were used to describe USAR and ARNG nurse officers as of September 30, 1987 and transaction information was used to identify those who entered and those who left these Reserve components in FY 1987. Profiled characteristics include: age, gender, marital status, number of dependents, race-ethnic group, highest educational level, home of record state, rank, source of commission, unit of assignment state, training category, military education, and nursing specialty. Comparison of accession and loss data with membership information indicates possible trends in gender, marital status, race-ethnic distribution, and geographic origin and highlights differences and similarities between the two components. Keywords: Army nursing; Nurse shortage; Nurse recruitment; Nurse accessions; Nurse losses; Characteristics of reserve nurses. (sdw)
