NP pay for VA medical center

  1. Does anyone know the starting salary for a new grad for the VA medical Center? I called human resources, but all they tell me is that it varies depending on the committee selection board? Thanks for your help!

    Depends on your interview it then goes in front of a board and they might take your RN experience into account also if you in a shortage position you might get a different pay rate varies considerably from VA to VA each network is different they do publish a pay scale for most positions from low to high if they take your RN experience into account it could raise you from the base if you are a new NP

    Yes OCCRN9 is correct, I work at the VA and I know that even some RN with ARNP that have been working on a ward Telemetry/PCU did not get step increase from level II (BSN) level III(MSN) You have to demostrate the skills for a MSN level where I work. The Pay for MSN start about 90000 goes up to 120000 there are Level IV that make alot more mostly ADM type of work and Research,Inspector Generals for a VISN etc starting in the 130000
