New Information of Interest to Veterans Entering the Nursing Field

On November 12, 2013, in the Student Union Atrium at Wright State University, an event took place to honor our Veterans.  The staff of the newly created Veteran and Military Center, together with the Office of Human Services and Education, the Office of Disability Services, and the Students Veterans Lounge honored our country’s veterans and showcased the outstanding support services that Wright State has to offer.

The Nursing Institute at Wright State University welcomed the opportunity to announce that the newly designed Nurse Aide Training Program is now subsidized by Veterans Affairs.  Veterans can register on-line, but also need to contact the Wright State Veteran and Military Center expressing interest in completing the program. 
Many visiting military members stopped by the display to learn more about this training program now required for persons entering the BSN program here at WSU, or who would like to begin work as a Nurse Aide.  The course prepares the student to take the state exam to be placed on the Nurse Aide registry.

Also displayed at the event were the captivating PARA baby seal robot—always a favorite—and a one-year-old human patient simulator which replicates many of the human body’s functions and is used in educating nurses and other health care workers.
