Within the armed forces, thousands of medics and corpsmen are trained to care for service members, Veterans, and their families in Department of Defense hospitals and clinics around the world. These individuals have experience and robust knowledge about medical care and patient safety both in the hospital and deployed setting. Although their training is not represented with a degree, programs like the Veteran to Bachelors of Science in Nursing Program (VCARE) at the University of South Florida (USF) College of Nursing allow medic and corpsman Veterans to apply their education, training, and experience to earn a degree through an accelerated BSN program.
