Keavney, Elaine C.
Online Learning, v19 n1 p112-116 2015
The Joining Forces Initiative challenges nursing programs throughout the country to develop curriculum that addresses the unique healthcare issues facing veterans. It is imperative that Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students acquire the knowledge that will help them to care for veterans in all areas of nursing practice. This article describes a retrospective evaluation of the effectiveness of a dedicated core curricular course in increasing awareness of the unique issues facing today's veteran. It also discusses whether nursing students gain an appreciation for their role in helping veterans gain access to available resources and achieve maximum health and wellness.
