NYIT Nurses Join Forces to Support U.S. Veterans

The NYIT Department of Nursing has pledged to support First Lady Michelle Obama's national initiative Joining Forces to educate America's future nurses and commit to:

  • educating America's future nurses to care for our nation's veterans, service members, and their families facing post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, depression, and other clinical issues;
  • enriching nursing education to ensure that current and future nurses are trained in the unique clinical challenges and best practices associated with caring for military service members, veterans, and their families;
  • integrating content that addresses the unique health and wellness challenges of our nation's service members, veterans, and their families into nursing curricula;
  • sharing teaching resources and applying best practices in the care of service members, veterans, and their families;
  • growing the body of knowledge leading to improvements in health care and wellness for our service members, veterans, and their families; and
  • joining with others to further strengthen the supportive community of nurses, institutions, and health care providers dedicated to improving the health of service members, veterans, and their families.

Together with the larger healthcare community, nurse educators commit to raising the quality of care available to our nation's military and veterans in our work to prepare future generations of nurses. Read more about Joining Forces.
