Yes (1) No (3) N/A (5) 12. Have the results of your study influenced nursing practice in a setting other than the military? Yes (2) No (2) N/A (5) Additional anecdotal comments volunteered by the respondents: Reviewers commented on the fact that although the research group was ''well seasoned,'' they were not mentoring military researchers, since the research was to be conducted at nonmilitary facilities. Grantee did not understand that mentoring was a goal of the TSNR Program. Grantee also felt that this requirement was not equally applied to all grant recipients, since a colleague who received a TSNR Program grant for research at a nonmilitary facility did not receive comments on the same issue of mentoring. Additionally, the grantee felt the negative comments received from a reviewer regarding a study method that was to be used indicated that the reviewer was not familiar with the theory. Six-month progress report is too soon. Just as actual research will begin, a progress report is due. The TriService Nursing Research Program should be continued because it focuses on the military nurse, for whom it is difficult to capture funding from other sources.
