Abstract

Veterans have unique health care needs that must be addressed. Seventy-five percent of veterans are treated outside Veteran Health Administration facilities, so all health care providers should be educated on how to better serve veterans and their families. Nurses are in a prime position to lead the way in these efforts, beginning in prelicensure nursing education. In this article, the authors describe a model and exemplars for integrating veteran-centered care into an existing curriculum, from beginning through advanced levels.
