Abstract

This paper examines the experience of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a female veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, including the barriers to treatment she encountered in an outpatient psychiatry clinic. DESIGN AND

METHODS.

Case report data were obtained through review of records and interviews with a veteran combat nurse diagnosed with chronic PTSD.

CONCLUSIONS.

This case report discusses these issues and invites further research. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS. Advanced practice psychiatric nurses increasingly will see female veterans with PTSD in their practices.
