SICU (small-all surgical specialties)
stepdown (multispecialty mid-level acuity unit)
surgical ward (multispecialty, has tele beds)
medical ward (some tele beds)
polytrauma (mostly new war vets)
spinal cord injury (some vent beds)
there are also some LTC/skilled nursing beds -- 3 units of this on the first floor. One of those 3 is hospice focused.
And then of course, there is the OR, the PACU, the observation/short stay units (2), the ER, and all the clinics (multiple), the radiology suites, the cath lab, the endoscopy suites....
I am not sure who specifically is hiring but I think that the nurse recruiter could fill you in on what is open.

The job they offered me was not even posted on their website. If the VA doesn't go through, I would recommend volunteering somewhere. I was amazed at how quickly and easily I made connections while volunteering.
