But from job offer date to orientation it'll be 2 months before I actually start bc they only do orientation once a month where I'm goingdoes this mean they will allow you to begin working before processing the background check etc?
- 0Oct 5, '12 by hcra19My husband has just been told that he has been selected for a position. He was informed via email that his application was referred on August 6th. He interviewed on Sept 25th and was told yesterday Oct 4th that he was selected.
I have a few questions. He is currently enrolled in class do you think there is a good chance it will take until the middle of Dec. for him to start working? Also, when do the health benefits usually kick in? Those of you currently working for the VA are you happy?
My concern is that this will be a pay cut for him, but will offfer more benefits and have room for advancement. He will be starting and LPN to RN program in the summer.

- 0Quote from Nursebyfaith~LpnYes this is my second week.... I started on the 9th.... I hope you get your position!!!!! I wasn't nervous at all. BUT my interview was a phone interview so I had no reason really to be nervous PLUS the questions they ask I'm used to bc I used to ask the types of questions they asked when I was a supervisor in retail....The manager told me she had 3 positions available. I'm praying that one the positions is mine. But I was so nervous but I did answer every questions. Was you nervous during your interview. Also are you working for the VA now.
- 0So what do you think about people you use to interview that are nervous. Have you ever hired someone that was nervous during the interview. I hope they don't go off of that cause it doesn't reflect on my skills as a nurse. I'm praying that I am selected. How long have you been a nurse
