For those veterans hoping to go into nursing, USF Health’s College of Nursing was recently ranked
No. 1 for veteran-friendliness.
According to online news publication Military Times, the ranking was based on several metrics, including size of veteran population and affordability. Commitment to veteran-related programs was also taken into consideration in the process.
USF was noted as offering “a special nursing degree for veterans who have trained as medics.” Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Interprofessional Initiatives Rita D’Aoust leads the program, V-CARE.
In addition to V-CARE, USF was lauded for being a veteran-friendly college for receiving a bachelor’s in nursing.
The college also has a research initiative, the Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which was designed to investigate a method to treat service members and veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder.
Additionally, the college recently implemented another initiative called the Research and Education to Rehabilitate and Restore the Lives of Veterans, known as RESTORE LIVES, which serves to increase partnership across the many military-focused ventures.
