    I am an LVN, although I work in a very specialized unit. I originally applied in mid-November 2009 and I actually started work on March, 8th, 2010. The process is long and tedious but I found the nurse recruiter to be extremely helpful in guiding me through the process.

    Thanks! I've been reading around and it says it might take 3-4 months to actually start. I just got an email stating to do a physical, background, vetpro thing. I haven't gotten an official offer on pay. Do they tell you once you completed everything?

    Again, I'm in a very specialized area of nursing, so my salary was agreed upon before I even started with the VetPro and background stuff.
