Veteran to Bachelor's (VCARE) 


The USF College of Nursing offers the Veteran to Bachelor's (VCARE) Program, created for service members and veterans who have completed training as Army, Air Force medics and Navy corpsmen. VCARE is a student-centered program tailored to each veteran, acknowledging and recognizing the training and experience that each student brings. VCARE shortens the time to degree completion while maintaining the academic rigor, clinical quality, and high NCLEX pass rates for which USF College of Nursing is known.
