    Thanks for the encouragement! You're right, I
    won't give up. I have reapplied and have applied to others positions within the VA as well. Do you have a BSN? A friend told me they only really want BSN. I am currently back in school for it but I'm still 8 mo from completion.

    I do have my BSN. Started out as ADN, then went back to school a few years ago. I think the fact that you are actively working towards BSN will weigh heavily in your favor against another ADN who is not. Focus on what you have to offer and your goals for the future. I get the impression that the VA wants nurses who value education and want to share what they know through mentoring and precepting

    Stlrgrl,

    I am totally going to stay persistent. One of your posts mentioned that a VA recruiter told you to be persistent. How is the transition to CA going for you? What VA did you get hired for? PM me if you don't mind, especially if you don't want to share on the thread. Any insight you can give me will be truly appreciated!

    Did they ever tell you what you could have done differently? I just recently had 3 interviews with the VA one I heard back right away that I wasn't selected and 2 I'm in the period waiting to hear back for those. I hate this waiting. I had researched the VA's interview process but I still have no idea how I did. I tried to contact the first nm I interviewed with by phone and by email to see how I could do better and she never got back with me.

    I don't think they ever call back to say how you did or what you could have done to improve. How long has it been since your interview?

    The one I heard back on was 2 weeks ago. The others I'm waiting on were 1 week ago and a week and a half ago. The one a week and a half ago they said I was their last interview. So IDK.

    Oh well you have some time then, the government kind of runs on their own time schedule and it takes forever to find out. You still have time yet I think.
