Abstract The nursing shortage that has plagued civilian health care has become a serious issue for the Air Force Nurse Corps. An adequate military nursing workforce is critical to ensuring quality care for a fit force. TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP) has identified recruitment and retention of the workforce as a research priority. The purpose of this project was to examine the impact of accurate information; family, faculty, and peer influence; and values as forces in the career decisions of young nurses. The specific aims of this qualitative/quantitative mixed method design study were to describe and model the knowledge, information, values, influences, and intentions of baccalaureate (BSN) students with regard to military nursing careers. These aims were accomplished through development and execution of a survey of a sample of 460 senior-level BSN students (8% male) at 10 universities throughout the United States.
