Abstract : The US Army Medical Department Study Board tasked the Center for Healthcare Education & Studies (CHES), US Army Medical Department Center & School (AMEDDC&S) to conduct two readiness studies. The purposes of the studies were to describe the readiness competency of nursing personnel in the US Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to develop a program that would meet identified training needs. This training manual and its videotape were developed as part of the Readiness Training Program (RTP), which is a product of these two studies. The purposes of this manual and its videotape are to provide trainers with information that will help them conduct an initial assessment of their unit's readiness competency in selected clinical nursing skills and execute their readiness training. A separate Training Support Package (TSP) provides more details regarding implementation of the entire RTP.
