Abstract This qualitative exploratory study examined the nature of individual medical readiness (IMR) for Army Nurse Corps (ANC) personnel and the component parts of IMR for ANC personnel. Specifically, the study aimed to develop a theoretical definition of IMR and to specify the variables derived. The study also aimed to develop a visual model of IMR. Although of prime concern to the military, this concept had not been clearly defined nor had the components been completely delineated. Concept clarification was the framework for this inductive approach. Three focus groups were formed, each comprising Army active, guard, and reserve component field grade and company grade officers and noncommissioned officers. Each focus group met in two sessions. The first session employed electronic brainstorming technology and a technographer to detail the nature and component parts of IMR. The second session was a more traditional focus group in which informants discussed and further clarified ideas generated in the first session. Methodological rigor was ensured by optimizing credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability.
