Educating behavioral health nurses to perform their wartime duties is of critical importance. As a result an interprofessional education (IPE) program was developed and implemented during field training in support of operational readiness. Application of IPE enhances the APRN student learning experience, improves communication strategies and teamwork, and improves patient satisfaction.
