Abstract.  The article analyzes the essence, content and possibility of modern war and the need for military specialists of high military-professional orientation to successfully solve professional problems. The main approaches that exist in the Russian pedagogical and psychological sciences to the definition of the essence and content of a professional orientation are analyzed. The specificity of this concept in military psychology and military pedagogy has been determined. The factors influencing the formation of the military-professional orientation of cadets of military universities are investigated. The necessity of taking into account the modern social conditions and characteristics of Russian youth in the professional education of future officers is shown. The results of the study allowed the authors to draw the following conclusion that the work on the formation of spiritual and value foundations, the improvement of the well-being of officers and their families, a frank presentation of modern threats to Russia, make the formation of a military-professional orientation of cadets of military universities more successful. An increase in the effectiveness of the formation of a military-professional orientation among cadets of military universities is organized in modern conditions in the system of military-political work. The value foundations of the military professional orientation of future officers are the idea of patriotism and the historically formed meanings and values of Russian officers, the historical and modern experience of the military professional activities of Russian military specialists in peacetime and in a combat situation.

Keywords: professional orientation, military-professional orientation of cadets, the need to form a professional orientation.
