Students enrolled in the curriculum Focus receive training specific to working with veterans and military families. Students in the Focus have the opportunity to participate in field/clinical placements in a variety of settings, all related to veterans or military families. Learn more about field opportunities.
Thanks to our ongoing collaboration with the Veterans Administration Western New York Healthcare System, many of the MSW advanced year Focus students intern at the Buffalo/Batavia VA.
"The DNP Veteran and Military Family Focus provides an opportunity for me to get an in-depth look into military culture from actual veterans and veteran experts from all walks of life– authors, nurses, counselors, veteran historians, etc. As a doctoral nursing student, this focus provides excellent and relevant tools needed to promote health for this unique patient population." -DNP Student
"I am a part of the MSW Veteran/Military Family Focus because I believe civilians have an obligation to serve the needs of veterans and military families. As a non-veteran, I want to serve my country in a different capacity." -MSW student
