UTA offering nursing program for veterans

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas -

The University of Texas – Arlington is recruiting members of the military for its nursing program.

The government is giving UTA money to train returning troops with medical experience to become civilian nurses. They are able to take courses online and earn a degree about nine months faster than traditional students.

"They will know how to do psycho motor tasks, blood pressure that a student coming out of high school doesn't know," said Beth Mancini, UTA's associate dean of nursing.

The goal is to help fill a shortage of nurses around the world with veterans who need jobs. And it's done without stressing the already crowded nursing programs.
