    Honestly when I interviewed I was still a new grad with no experience I only worked while I waited.

    I have been interested in a position at a VA hospital, so I was glad to hear that you found a position without a TON of years experience. Makes me hopeful!

    BSN. But they hire ASN as well so just apply to every position until you get a bite.

    ongratulations on your job with the VA! That's amazing and I hope to also work there some day. I've heard that it takes a while for them to process an application. How long did it take from the initial application until you were interviewed/hired? I'm a vet myself and definitely want to look into this when I graduate from school. Again, congrats on both the baby and the job and I'm very happy for you.

    It took forever!! I had to call the graduate admission people multiple times to see if they had gotten my stuff and eventually had to go up there in person. After that it took about a month and a half.
