NURS 432: Veteran-Military Culture, Educational and Health Care Needs

Summer 1 ($0 textbook cost course)

Military downsizing has resulted in an increase in veterans in academic, healthcare and workplace settings. This course will provide a broad overview of the Veteran-Military population and their unique culture, educational and healthcare needs. This course is interdisciplinary and open to non-nursing majors.

There is no required textbook, and no exams or lengthy papers. Assignments include interactive learning experiences of your choice such as: field trips, movies, service learning, or attending military-veteran recognition events. This course is a hybrid-asynchronous course to accommodate off-island or working students. Students are only required to attend 3 videoconference class sessions. The rest of the class is posted online.
