the veterans we see live over 100 miles from the nearest Veteran Hospital and also some of our veterans are disabled.

This has allowed us to assess patient via the phone of video conferencing. Telenursing is the delivery, management, and coordination of care and services provided via telecommunications technology within the domain of nursing. (American Association of Ambulatory Care Nursing ( AAACN), 2004). As a result of technology, we can access and review data from different states before setting up an appointment with the patient to see a mental health provider.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
