    Yes, you can work for the VA, or any federal employer, with a valid license from any US state, not necessarily the state in which the facility is actually physically located. You can find information about openings at the Atlanta VA hospital on USAJOBS - The Federal Government's Official Jobs Site, or you can simply contact the hospital directly. However, be aware that the VA hiring process is extremely slow, and there is typically a lot of competition for VA nursing jobs these days, since the VA is one of the last few remaining good healthcare employers in the US.

    Best wishes!

    Thank you sooooo much for that information
    i don't know how... Will try the phone book for their contact information

    that's an amazing guideline for them to set

    i wonder if they have any new hire gigs at all? I would even go to california, new orleans, anywhere with that in mind

    just praying for a job

    Hi, I know this post is old but was wondering if you can tell me where to go to read this information about only needing a valid US state license to work for the VA. I've a friend who mentioned this to me also, but couldn't tell me where I could see concrete evidence regarding this. This is great info. but I NEED TO SEE/READ this in writing for myself. Can you provide the resource for this information?? Thanks in advance.

    Here is a link specifically for a job at the the VA hospital in Atlanta/Decatur where it states both in the title that New Graduates may apply as well as under the qualifications it indicates you need only have a license from one of the 50 states (or additional territory, etc.) The VA Careers website is probably THE place you want to look at for nursing jobs at a VA facility, as it lists them ALL.
