I recently transferred from the Reno VA to a new one There really is a mix of dx's because the hospital is very small compared to other VA's. There is mental health, long term unit that houses hospice and rehab as well. The ER is pretty small as well as the ICU. Primary care is housed at the main hospital as well. The shifts depend on the unit, some units just went to 12 hour shifts but some nurses still work 8. Long term care is 8 hour shifts. The Reno VA is nice for just starting out, but as far as advancement I would look elsewhere, that is the main reason I transferred.
Best of luck and hope this helps a little!
