AbstractPurposes were to describe nurse case management effect on a weight management program, compare weight and body fat changes in clients receiving usual services vs . enhanced services, and describe goal attainment. Using a quasi-experimental design, experimental group received case management and military weight program; the control group, military weight program. Data analysis employed paired t-test, two sample t-test, and chi-square analysis. Paired t-tests indicated significant weight loss in experimental group (p =.01 ), but not in control group (p = .16). Two sample independent t-tests indicated no difference between group means (t = .57, df = 24, p =.58). Paired t-tests indicated significant difference in fat loss in both groups (p = .01, p =.00). Two sample independent t-tests indicated no difference between group means (t= . 71, df = 24, p =.49). There was no relationship between the two groups on goal attainment x^2 (1, N = 26) = .02, p =.90).
