the Jonas Veterans Healthcare Program

Recognizing the tremendous commitment and sacrifices our veterans have made to serve our country, the Jonas Center is committed to do our part to support improved healthcare for this population. Starting in the fall of 2012, the Jonas Center will support scholarships for 54 nurses to be trained at the doctoral level (PhD and DNP) on veteran-specific healthcare needs, ranging from clinical to policy to administration to education, to help ensure our veterans are receiving the best possible care. Scholar’s research projects will be focused on priority veterans’ healthcare need (as identified by the White House and Veterans Administration):

• Mental Health

• Poly-trauma

• Vision Impairment

• Prosthetics

• Spinal Cord Injury

• Aging

• Women’s Health

• Traumatic Brain Injury

• Homelessness

• Care Coordination/Transitions

• Informatics

• Interdisciplinary care

We are pleased to have Retired Brigadier General Bill Bester, 21st Chief of the Army Nurse Corps, on board as Senior Advisor to the Jonas Veterans Healthcare Program.

The Jonas Center’s vision is to foster new partnerships that help improve veterans’ healthcare through nursing and we welcome all contributions to support our efforts.
