The Tri-Service Military Special Interest Group (SIG) is a dynamic, diverse group of military and government nurses.
The Tri-Service Military SIG has been active for over 30 years. Its members have a variety of clinical backgrounds, including inpatient/outpatient, large, and small facilities. Our military services missions provide our nurses with a variety of unique skills. A member from each of the services is selected to represent their corp in SIG leadership.
All military nurses, DOD civilians, Veterans Affairs and other uniformed services nurses are invited to attend Tri-Service Military SIG events at the American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) Annual Conferences.
We are facing culture changes with our patients and staff as we all move forward and embrace Patient Centered Medical Home model practices. We will continue to share concerns, recommendations, and solutions to implementation that will aid in providing safe quality care in our daily practices.
