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 active and reserve components of the US Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to develop a program that would meet identified training needs. This Training Support Package (TSP) describes the Readiness Training Program (RTP) that is the product of these two studies. The purpose of the TSP is to provide leaders and trainers with information and materials needed to implement the RTP for nursing personnel in their unit/Medical Treatment Facility (MTF). Included in the TSP are an explanation of the training program as well as task summaries for clinical skills and battle-focused functions (BFFs). Principles of training as well as management of the training program are discussed.
