Veteran and Military Health Care (DNP/MS)
Veteran and Military Health Care (VMHC) is an emerging healthcare specialty based on the unique attributes of the veteran and military service member population. Specific needs of this population include an understanding of veteran and military culture, family dynamics, the invisible and visible consequences of war, service-connected conditions, environmental exposures, diversity, resiliency, reintegration, and making changes in federal healthcare delivery systems. This program is a first of its kind in the nation and has been featured in US News and World Report as part of a constellation of initiatives to serve our veteran population. Veterans Care a Collaborative Focus at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
At the University of Colorado College of Nursing, we believe in helping those who care for our military and veterans. To that end, we offer a graduate certificate?, master's specialty and post-graduate certificate (second MS in Nursing) and DNP Leadership with a veteran and military healthcare specialization. Students can also pursue a combination master's and PhD with VMHC option or a PhD with a VMHC option. Students who earn their master's degree with VMHC emphasis can also continue on and earn their doctorate of nursing practice through the BS-DNP program.
Courses are online and are available as stand-alone courses to non-degree students in all professions, as well as current CU degree-seeking students. Each course is worth 3 graduate-level credits.
