Congresswoman Meets V-CARE Students

Congresswoman Meets V-CARE Students

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor visited the USF College of Nursing on April 30 to talk with a handful of students in the college’s acclaimed V-CARE program.
 
Nursing students discussed the benefits of V-CARE, a program that provides an accelerated pathway for veterans and active military medics or corpsmen to earn their bachelor’s degree in nursing.
 
Many lauded V-CARE for how it helps veterans transition from the military to the civilian sector. Others praised the program’s tight-knit group of peers, who share a similar mentality.
