Joining Forces - UB

Information about the Veteran and Military Family Focus DNP Program Opportunities

Joining Forces-UB is a collaborative effort between the School of Nursing and the School of Social Work to educate graduate nurses and social workers about the physical and mental health needs of military veterans and their families.  DNP students are offered the opportunity to focus on military culture and population-focused care through coursework and clinical experiences.

It is estimated that there are over 112,000 veterans that reside within the 5 counties of Western New York with that number increasing as more troops are withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Joining Forces Initiative was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden in 2010.
