The nation’s nursing shortage continues to have the potential to negatively impact the quality and safety of patient care both in civilian and military medical treatment facilities (MTF). Insufficient Army nursing capacity and in some cases low density specialties can threaten the viability of current and future AMEDD missions. The materials combined in this book provide complete, easily understandable, and well-planned learning tools for both military and civilian students. This Field Training Workbook is used as a quick reference manual for supportive care as well as guidance for the total skills competency required of medical personnel. In addition to providing the most concise information for consistent training and efficient learning, this text also provides guidance for diagnostics and self-testing. The United States Army is recognized internationally as the standard for complete, efficient and effective adult education.
