Using individual-level data on active duty naval officers in fiscal years 2010 to 2018, I estimate predictive models for nurse corps officers’ promotions to the ranks of lieutenant commander, commander, and captain. Among nurse corps lieutenants eligible for lieutenant commander promotion, I find that nurse corps–specific professional qualifications, such as duty under instruction, Additional Qualification Designators, and being a nurse provider, are associated with positive promotion outcomes, all else equal. Similar results are found for the lieutenant commander promotion to commander, with the exception that being a prior-enlisted nurse corps officer is associated with reduced promotion probabilities to the grade of commander. Among eligible commanders, having Additional Qualification Designators is associated with increased promotion probabilities, while being a nurse provider is associated with reduced probability of promotion to the grade of captain. For all three considered promotion milestones, being married is associated with increased promotion probabilities, while having dependent children as well as commissioning at a later age are associated with lower promotion probabilities, all else equal. The findings of this analysis can inform Navy nurse corps policy-makers on the likelihood of promotion at different milestones in a nurse corps officer’s career.
