10 Jul FIU to train nurses in veteran-related care
FIU’s College of Nursing and the Miami Veterans Affairs Healthcare System have received more than $8 million in federal funding to train 20 to 40 additional nurses a year. Their focus will be on veterans-related health care issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, mental health issues, chemical exposure and major traumatic limb loss and rehabilitation.
These undergraduate students, the first 20 of whom will start this fall, will get clinical training in the Miami VA Hospital, and some will be offered special residencies with the Miami VA after they graduate. Others will take jobs at other VAs or in the private sector.
