This report investigates factors influencing the plans of Active Duty Army nurses to join a Reserve or Guard unit on leaving Active service. Data from the 1985 DoD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel were used to develop profiles of Active Duty Army nurses in three tenure groups. Logistic regression models were estimated to assess the individual and joint effects on Reserve intentions of a number of demographic, military background, economic incentive, cognitive/perceptual, and employment opportunity variables for two tenure groups and for three marital status groups. Results varied with subpopulations but generally indicate that programs which increase a nurse's satisfaction with specific facets of the working environment, which clarify promotion opportunities, and which address issues of compatability of Reserve service with family life, will positively affect Reserve intentions. Keywords: Nurse recruitment, Nurse characteristics. (sdw)
