Joining Forces–UB is committed to training UB social work and nursing students who are interested in working with veterans and military family members. Our training programs offer both clinical and academic experience specific to working with this population. Through either the MSW (Master of Social Work) Specialization or DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice) Focus, students will gain valuable experience and knowledge to work effectively with veterans and military family members.
