George Washington University To Offer Veterans BSN Program

George Washington UniversityWASHINGTON—The George Washington University’s School of Nursing is launching a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program for military veterans. The Veterans BSN program, beginning in the spring 2015 semester, is designed to support veterans’ transition to the professional nursing workforce and award academic credit for veterans’ prior experience and training. 

“This BSN program is specially designed for military veterans,” said associate dean for undergraduate studies Billinda Tebbenhoff. “What makes GW’s program unique is that reservists and veterans with a non-medical specialty are eligible to apply. Additionally, GW’s Veterans BSN offers a curricular road map tailored to each student based on that student’s prior military training and experience and prior college-level coursework.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ employment projections 2012-2022, nursing is expected to be one of the nation’s fastest growing careers, with an estimated 19 percent increase in the labor force by 2022. The new academic program reflects the growing national demand for health care services, particularly primary care services, and the increasing emphasis on the BSN as the minimum entry-level degree for nursing practice. 

“Many veterans possess valuable skills and training that position them well for entry into the nursing profession,” said interim senior associate dean Mary Jean Schumann. “This program addresses two critical needs: the need to support veterans in their transition from military duty to the civilian workforce and our nation’s increasing need for health care services.”

The program is a full-time, 15-month program based at the GW Virginia Science and Technology Campus. According to Kiplinger, nursing is one of the top ten degrees for return on investment. 

The new academic degree was developed through the Veterans Educational Transition to Success Initiative, a $1 million project funded by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration. It is designed to add to the knowledge base of best practices that assist veterans who face unique challenges as adult students, and to develop a replicable model for nursing education with the capacity to attract, retain, and graduate veterans interested in transitioning into the nursing profession. 

The George Washington University School of Nursing

Ranked in the top 10 percent of nursing schools by U.S. News & World Report, the George Washington University School of Nursing educates and inspires nurses to provide high-quality, compassionate person-centered health care. The school develops leaders actively engaged in health promotion, patient advocacy and healthcare innovation, and prepares exceptional nurse educators who pursue quality and advance the profession. The School of Nursing, established in 2010, is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of people and communities locally, nationally and globally. The school values lifelong learning and its students advance nursing practice, leadership and education as they make a difference in the world.

Want to be a Nurse Yes No   I am taking up nursing at this moment and its truly hard, yet its not inconceivable. there are a ton of universities offering nursing, so you have a lot of choices. its fine that you didn't do as such well in you science classes in secondary school since you wind up starting from the very beginning in school. you ought to have a go at nursing and perceive how you like it. on the off chance that you don't care for it you can simply change your major.
