    Abstract

    Background: Nurse educators frequently search for innovative ways to address specific population needs such as those presented by veterans. Method: To integrate veteran-centric content into undergraduate nursing curriculum, Veterans Affairs Nursing Academic Partnership (VANAP) faculty conducted a literature review, collaborated with stakeholders, developed veteran-centric competencies, identified natural areas in existing curriculum for content integration, developed learning activities, and created a content integration map. Results: Eight VANAP competencies were developed to guide content integration. A map of veteran-centric content integration into the baccalaureate curriculum was created, and content was integrated into theory and clinical courses, and simulation experiences in the undergraduate program. Conclusion: The strategies for incorporating veteran-centric care into a curriculum can be used by all nurse educators to integrate and maintain various population-specific content.
