PURPOSE:  The aims were to examine military nurses and combat-wounded patients' evaluation of a cognitive behavioral intervention Web site called Stress Gym. DESIGN AND METHODS:  The use of the intervention was a proof-of-concept design with 129 military nurses and combat-wounded patients in military medical treatment facilities (MTFs). The nurses and patients logged on to Stress Gym, reviewed the nine modules available, and completed a short evaluation of the Web site. FINDINGS:  The evaluation of the military nurses and patients was high. There were no significant differences in the evaluation based on military services, sex, deployment, and education levels. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:  The strength of Stress Gym is that it enables all military members to learn about and get help with problems such as stress, anxiety, anger, and depressive symptoms anonymously and in private. CLINICAL RELEVANCE:  Stress Gym is a versatile tool that can help nurses address the psychosocial needs of their patients by encouraging its use and including it in treatment protocols.
