Individual readiness is critical for effective nursing in deployed environments.
Although readiness is routinely tracked and reported, a study of its complexity among federal nurses was needed.
An inductive research approach clarified the concept of individual readiness.
Representing a broad range of deployment experience, focus group members developed a definition of the concept and identified six components :
clinical competency ;
operational competency ;
survival skills ;
personal/psychosocial/physical readiness ;
leadership and administrative support ;
and group integration and identification.
The findings form an overdue conceptual basis for future measurement of this important dimension of federal nursing.
