Veteran Life Science Institute
The VLSI program will initially focus on helping our veterans earn nursing credentials by enrolling them in on-the-job training programs recognized by professional medical organizations. For veterans with backgrounds in the medical fields, these nursing programs leverage the skills and experiences they acquired during their military careers.
Over the next 10 years in the U.S., approximately 800,000 new nursing positions will be needed to meet the demands in the healthcare industry. Currently, we are preparing to open three large acute care hospitals equipped with surgical-quality laboratory space, medical equipment, classrooms, and student dormitory housing. Future programs will include education in related fields such as emergency medical technician (EMT) and medical technology.
