Congress established the TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP) in 1992 to serve the nursing research needs of the military. The TSNRP advances the science of military nursing to support mission readiness and deployment, improves the health and quality of life of military personnel, and provides optimal nursing care in settings worldwide. In 1995, the TSNRP Advisory Council commissioned the Institute of Medicine to make recommendations on management, research funding areas, resource allocation, and objectives. In 1996, the committee issued its report, The Program for Research in Military Nursing: Progress and Future Direction. A principal recommendation was that the TSNRP hold regular research priority-setting conferences. In response, since 2000, the TSNRP has held three conferences. This article follows up the Institute of Medicine report and summarizes the results of those conferences. The article describes conference processes, constituents, and conclusions and outlines future TSNRP research directions.
