Post-traumatic stress disorder in military nurses who served in Vietnam during the war years 1965-1973

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Fifty nurses who served in Vietnam in the military were interviewed about their war experiences and the presence of post-traumatic stress disorder. Results indicate that the number of nurses suffering from this disorder has decreased since the initial post-war years. Two variables: the intensity of the wartime experience, and supportive social networks after the war, influenced the level of post-traumatic stress disorder.
