The goal of this project was to evaluate the clarity, usefulness and willingness to adopt a Joint Military Nursing Professional Practice Model by military nurse leaders into the military health system. This paper specifically examined leader feedback and perceptions prior to implementation of the Joint Professional Practice Model (JPPM) into designated pilot sites within the Military Health System (MHS) Nursing environment. This project includes Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) discussions reflecting the clarity of definition of model components, usefulness of the model and its components, and willingness to adopt the JPPM. This information will be used to modify the new JPPM prior to implementation and develop educational material for the successful deployment and adoption of a JPPM into practice settings across the military health system.
