Abstract

Abstract: Approximately 20% of veterans suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). NPs are well positioned to provide early detection and assist veterans with access to life-saving treatment. The PTSD Toolkit for Nurses helps nurses improve their skills in assessing PTSD and provides a specialized intervention and referral procedure that promotes help-seeking behavior among veterans.
