I have 2 years Critical Care/Step Down experience, and am considering applying to the VA. Does anyone have experience at the Albuquerque VA hospital? What's the work environment, staff-patient ratio and quality of resources for nurses there? How do the docs treat us? Also, how do they schedule--the VA boasts "flexible" scheduling with paid holidays, etc. but given it's a 24 hour acute care facility, how may hours and days a week do you really work? Do you get shift differentials and overtime pay?
