COMMITTEE APPROVES McHOSE NURSING CREDITS FOR MEDICAL MILITARY TRAINING MEASURE
Under a bill sponsored by Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose and approved today by the Assembly Regulated Professions Committee, nursing students would be eligible to receive academic credit for medical training received in the U.S. military.
“This is yet another effort to help our men and women transition to civilian life after valiantly serving our country as corpsmen and medics,” said McHose, R-Sussex, Warren and Morris. “In addition to the comprehensive and intense training they receive, many of these medical military personnel have already put that training to use serving under the most dire and severe conditions.
“What many of them have experienced on a battlefield cannot be taught in a classroom,” she continued. “Their training and hands-on service makes them ideal candidates for nursing school following their discharge. Such training and service is deserving of academic credit as they continue their education in a civilian setting.”
The measure, A-2061, directs the New Jersey Board of Nursing to encourage schools of nursing approved by the board to consider granting a nursing student, who served in the U.S. military, academic credit toward the student’s nursing degree for the student’s prior training and experience as a Naval corpsman or Army medic.
