The purpose of this research is to explore factors that influenced the development of the United States Air Force Nurse Corps from 1984 through 1998. The main research documents were the Annual and Semi-Annual Reports from the United States Air Force Surgeon General's office for the time period. A chronology of important Nurse Corps accomplishments has been delineated in Appendix A. From this chronology, four main influences were determined. They were the nursing shortage and retention challenge, participation in Operation DESERT SHIELD/DESERT STORM, participation in Military Operations Other Than War, and the transition to the Objective Medical Group. These four influences had a direct impact on the expansion of nursing opportunities in the Air Force. This chronology is the final part of a three part series conducted by fellow Air War College students. All three chronologies serve as a living document of United States Air Force Nurse Corps accomplishments upon which future accomplishments can be added.
