Students at ASU’s College of Nursing and Health Innovation say the Phoenix Veterans Affairs program at the school has provided them with valuable practical skills.

This semester, the college received an award allowing nursing students to work at the Phoenix VA as part of their required clinical assignments.

Dean Teri Pipe called it a great opportunity for the nursing students.

“We are able to educate more students because they (the VA) will be opening up clinical placement slots,” she said.

Two of the students involved, juniors Victoria Tank and Shaina Welch, both said the experience has been wonderful and they have learned many new things.
