This is sort of a continuation of the coversation on VA hospitals. I have been interested in applying since I became an LPN last year. I am asking for posts from VA LPNs (RNs, also, for those interested as well) sharing the benefits and their outlook on working there. I live in the New York Metropolitan area. Do they have 12 hour shifts? Are the shifts steady or do they change? I have heard that in one week, a person may work days for a few, evenings, or nights all within that same week. Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!
