Veteran and Military Health Care (VMHC) is a health care specialty based on the unique attributes of the veteran and military service member population. Specific needs of this population include the veteran and military health care delivery systems, maintaining a ready force, care during military operations, invisible and visible consequences of war, veteran and military culture, and veteran and military family dynamics.
At the University of Colorado College of Nursing, we believe in helping those who care for our military and veterans. To that end, we now offer a graduate certificate, master's specialty and post-graduate certificate (second MS in Nursing) with a veteran and military health care specialization. Students can also pursue a combination master's and PhD with VMHC option, or a PhD with a VMHC options. 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 designed to be non-sequential and are available as stand-alone courses to nondegree students and current CU degree students. Each course is worth 3 graduate-level credits.
