NC VA Medical Center (Fayetteville)

  1. Hi. I'm a nurse in NC. I am currently a stay-at-home mom, due to child care issues. I am interested in working for the VA Medical Center, but I have heard some interesting stories of severe under staffing and terrible working conditions. Is there anyone out there who works for VA Fayettevile, NC, who can shed some light on this topic, please? Thanks. God Bless.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy it here. Oh, how it gets lonesome with no other nurses around you daily.

    But anyway, please tell me how to get the "Cartoon Person" icon below your name. Thanks. God bless.

    Hi! I worked there as a tech during nursing school and didn't want to work there as a new RN. The benefits sounded awesome as there is a lot of time off. The nurse patient ratios weren't good at all, can't remember what they were, but weren't good. The nurse might have 15 patients, and basically they just passed meds and the techs took care of the patient. What was scarey was good head-to-toe assessments were not being done, it was more nursing home style. That was a long time ago.

    Good luck!

    I believe I do. I thought it was automatic, but I guess not. Thanks for the offer.

    Love and God Bless

    Oh my!! :uhoh21:

    No wonder they have a $5000 sign on bonus. God help them and their patients.

    Maybe I ought to do some recruiting for them, so things can get better

    Love and God bless.
