Rural & Veteran 2012
Students in the rural and veterans clinical group spent one week in Washington D.C., gaining clinical experience at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the VA Flagship Hospital, and visiting with recently returned military personnel. They also visited the Pentagon and other war memorial sites. This experience helped them to better understand and appreciate the experiences and sacrifices of our U.S. Veterans. In Utah, students’ clinical settings included outpatient clinics at the Salt Lake City VA Medical Center, CBOC (Community Based Outpatient Clinic) and hospice settings. The variety of settings gave students exposure to the Veterans’ health care system and their need for access to a variety of health care needs.
In addition, students chose to work in small, rural community inpatient and/or outpatient settings. They became involved in the rural community experience including public health, local hospitals, home health and/or hospice, school nursing, or any other unique setting in the particular community. Each community had a rural hospital, which was used as the students’ home base. Many veterans live in rural communities as well, which gave students the opportunity to understand challenges to health care access.The course is taught by two nursing faculty members who are also veterans.
