Corpsman Manual

A Summary of NAVEDTRA 14295A

Including Additional Chosen Instructions
Summer 2012
Author’s Note

This was written based upon a personal breakdown of the Hospital Corpsman Manual and other instructions. At the time of the summarization the author specifically left out information that was known to her. Upon writing this copy to assist other coworkers the majority of the left out information was researched and included, though there is no guarantee that all information was located. That being said NOTHING can replace a sailor’s own motivation to research the NAVEDTRA 14295A and other subsequent instructions in its entirety on their own. It is highly encouraged for you to do so and not rely on other’s accounts whether it be from a fellow shipmate, online or wherever else you may find it.

Good luck on your test! (
