Abstract In March 2003, 437 Navy Nurse Corps (NNC) reservists were recalled to active duty to provide continuum in care at several Navy Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs), as well as deployed with the Marines to Iraq (in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF) and Afghanistan (in support of Operation Enduring Freedom OEF). The purpose of this study was to identify factors that contribute to the retention of mobilized NNC reservists, because a negative experience with a recall to active duty could make a nurse reservist resign his/her commission. The specific aims of this study were to compare the factors that predict intent to stay of NNC reservists; to determine the scope of the problem of nurses intent to stay in the Reserves after return from deployment; test a causal model of voluntary turnover with a sample of NNC reservists who have returned from deployment; and offer an opportunity for mobilized reservists to describe any additional factors influencing ones intent to stay in the Navy Reserves.
