Calling all U.S. military medical veterans, reservists and national guard members. Thousands of military veterans are returning home every day with hopes of reentering the civilian workforce.
FIU is one of nine universities nationwide offering the federally funded Veterans Bachelor of Science in Nursing (VBSN) aka Medic-to-Nurse program.
This accredited, full-time accelerated program transitions medically trained medics and corpsmen into nurses while bolstering the number of nurse professionals with a robust understanding of the unique veteran patient population.
The track has limited enrollment for two (2) cohorts, one in the Spring semester, the other in the Fall.
The VBSN is a special project sponsored and partially funded by a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Service Administration and the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences.
