AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Nursing students at Auburn University and Auburn Montgomery will have the opportunity this spring to work with staff at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., providing care to wounded service men and women.
“With a growing number of service members, veterans and their family members seeking care outside of the Military and Veterans Affairs health systems, it’s imperative for our students to be properly prepared to address their physical, as well as emotional, needs,” said Schools of Nursing Dean Gregg Newschwander. “We are fortunate to have an agreement with Walter Reed to provide this clinical opportunity.”
