Military and Combat Nursing

Nurses have served the Armies of the world proudly during war and peace. Wherever duty called the fighting man, it also called the Army nurse. Following every major training exercise, every deployment for combat experience. While nearly everyone acknowledges the general value, few fully appreciate the concept and process involved. Military nursing innovation as a term has been so overused and misused that it has resulted in a variety of meanings. While for some the term means simply observations, and others apply it broadly to any innovative and potentially performance-improving idea. Starting with World War II and proceeding through the most recent conflicts, examination of available data proved that nursing activities during all conflicts could be placed into four categories: training or preparation, living and working conditions, innovations or improvisation, and redeployment or "going home".
