Joining Forces: Learning about Veterans Using Healthcare Simulation Techniques
Military Veterans seek healthcare in many settings. Some qualified for services may use Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics, but many receive care in other private sector offices and facilities. In 2012, the White House’s Joining Forces initiative to support service members, veterans, and their families was extended to include education for nursing students. The National League for Nursing (NLN) with the support from the Laerdal Medical Corporation commissioned the development of four sets of simulation scenarios to help educate nursing students about the culture and needs of Veterans from certain eras.
