    What exactly are the pre-requisites for a new grad to work at the VA? I mean, besides being an American citizen.

    No Pre-reqs that I know of. I just applied they the website and made sure I completed all paperwork asked of me

    For some positions like ICU and ER they usually ask for experience. But for medsurg it's pretty much just have your license and be a citizen, and of course fill out a ton of paperwork

    You are right on that. The ICU manager looked at my résumé, because the patients I have taken care of are what they have in their ICU. But I had had med/surg/Tele exp. that was specialized to cardiopulmonary. Like I have mentioned I did have the med/surg interview and am still waiting.

    If not selected I would get an email telling me so. No such email has come and the website has me as eligible. This is just way to slow in my eyes.

    My process seemed quick compared to others... But at the same time it was very slow if that makes any sense... I got a phone call the next Monday for my offer and a couple days later I got an email saying that I was selected for the position.... Did you apply for more than one position??? I did and I am still receiving emails from those jobs saying that I didn't get selected (even though I never was interviewed for the others).... I would call the nursing recruiter and see if they selected someone for the position you applied

    I did call the Recruitor assigned to that job and all the others I have applied for. She told me they had not selected anyone yet. She told me she would call if I was offered the position. To be honest I have given up and moved on. It is the VA's loss. LOL

    Part of the problem I think is that a lot of the jobs they list for a long time, like 2 months. So if you apply a couple days after they post the job you'll wait 2 months to hear anything. It shows on usajobs how long the job will be listed.

    I do agree with that... They don't make a final decision until the actual job closes.... Correct?
