This partnership between the “Be a Hero-Hire a Hero” organization and UTMB will promote the recruitment of high qualified military veterans prior to discharge for clinical and continuing education opportunities and career growth in the UTMB School of Nursing. In addition to funding on-site seminars and promotion of the program at military bases nationwide, this award will also provide a portion of short-term supplemental housing costs to support the transition from military to civilian housing for qualifying veterans.
