Joining Forces Webinar Series: Educating Future Nurses to Care for Veterans Part II
May 7, 2012
Time: 2:00 AM to 3:30 PM
AACN is proud to support the Joining Forces campaign. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national campaign launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they deserve. This series of free Webinars will showcase innovative approaches to preparing students and nurses to care for service members and veterans.
This webinar will discuss a current initiative of the nation’s AHECs (Area Health Education Centers) to educate civilian health professionals about deployment-related mental and behavioral health issues of veterans, service members and their families. This AHEC initiative is bringing continuing education programs to nurses and other clinicians in local communities that will impact both the quality of services and access to care for veterans living in those communities.
