Veteran to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (V-BSN)
SHENANDOAH UNIVERSITY AWARDED MORE THAN $1.2 MILLION TO EDUCATE MILITARY VETERAN
Shenandoah University’s Eleanor Wade Custer School of Nursing is now at the forefront of identifying and educating military veterans pursuing the field of professional nursing. The university is one of nine institutions across the country participating in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
Shenandoah’s project, for which more than $1.2 million in federal funding has been recommended, aims to identify and enroll veterans who received medical training and gained experience while they were in the service, and to help those individuals transition into the civilian workforce as bachelor degree-prepared nurses.
To be eligible for Shenandoah’s Veteran-to-BSN program, you must:
- Be a prior service member with an honorable or general discharge, including reservists.
- Have prior military medical training.
- Have a desire to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.).
