Great article and a reminder to have an empathic approach to all we care for. Healthcare is not a one size fits all. As nurses, we must be in tune with who we are caring for and the history that comes with them.

Nurses advocating for their pts needs to ensure their best possible outcomes definitely includes their living situations. Coupling with case managers to offer community resources for short term and long term solutions is imperative .

Nurses need to continue to utilize reflective practice so we can reshape and continue to individualize veterans plans of care so we can have the most impact especially regarding PTSD and homelessness. We need to support those men and women who bravely served our nation.
