A Veterans' Bachelor of Science in Nursing Initiative: Ten Valuable Tips
Nursing education perspectives
This article describes a funded grant project whereby 10 tips are shared for those considering starting a veterans' bachelor of science in nursing initiative: secure the support of the institution; establish a point person for the initiative; maximize student success resources; acknowledge past academic work and military experience; hire prior-service Armed Forces Nurse Corps officers as faculty; deliver training opportunities for nonmilitary faculty to learn about veterans; offer students the opportunity to learn and socialize with their noncivilian peers; capitalize on the assets veterans bring to the classroom; provide a structured learning environment; and generate data-based publications.
