A Lifetime of Service; Successful Transition from Military Service to a BSN.

Presenter(s): 

Dr. Jason E Saladiner, Clinical Associate Professor, Director of Innovative Programs, College of Nursing and Health Sciences; Mr. Jason Lott, eLine Military Program Coordinator, College of Nursing and Health Science; Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi

Session will focus on educational strategies utilized to award credit for military training and experience at the competency level, which exceeds the award of credit at the course level from military transcript evaluations. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's (TAMUCC) eLine Military Program (ELM) developed an individualized Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) to award the maximum amount of credit from military service. The PLA(s) remove redundancy by awarding competency level credit for military service. This innovative approach identifies the knowledge gap and provides a customized curriculum for each student. The veteran's unique experience(s) translate into credit and ultimately into an employable credential in the most efficient means possible. Support strategies utilized by ELM's Circle of Care Model (e.g. case management, disability and counseling services) will be shared.
