    Not very long at all. Maybe just a week or two from the time the Recruiter called me. I got an in person interview first and then the Talent Plus interview. They only offer you the Talent Plus if you do well at the first interview. Everyone hired at VHC has to go through it. The longest wait at VHC is just between the time you apply and the time they contact you with interest. I've applied there twice and each time it was 4-5 months from the time I applied. The first time I had already accepted another job so I declined when they called. The second time I left my current job at the time of two years to join with them at VHC. But both times it was a long wait after application. I stayed there for 6 months and then my husband got orders so moved to Colorado Springs in September. Good luck!! They're a great hospital to work for! They offer great resources.

    It's after. During the first interview I met with the PCD. Then like 15 minutes afterward the unit staff interviewed me. There were 3 staff members sitting in the interview. One Charge Nurse, The Assistant Patient Care Director, and a staff Nurse. I'm pretty sure after that I went right down with the PCD and did my drug screen at the lab the same day. If they are considering you after the in person interview they will give you a phone number to call and schedule your Talent Plus Interview.Then someone will call you and ask you personality based questions. Like do you smile a lot? Do you consider yourself a happy person? What are your thoughts on work flow? etc, etc. If they need you to repeat a question they can, but they can not elaborate on it or explain the question further. VHC utilizes Talent Plus because they want to make sure you fit their anchors of service and mission. One more reason they got recognized as top #100 of hospitals in US. The people who work there love it and are happy to be there, thus enhancing patient experience. So their interview process has a lot of steps There may be variations with the interviews such as if you get a coworker interview or not and whether things occur on the same day or not, but one thing I know for sure everyone who gets hired there must go through the Talent Plus Interview. At least that's the way it was until I left this past August.

    Are you guys talking about the Nursing Student Residency/Scholarship program? I applied for this nearly a month ago, and have yet to hear back (although they did say late March/early April for responses).

    They would call you to schedule for a panel interview soon, then Talent Plus. The in person interview should be from the end of March through the first part of April. The scholarship award is given out in May, during Nursing week.

    Yes, I got a call back and went through the initial, talent plus, and peer interview. I had to do a urine analysis during the peer interview. I'm currently waiting on an email/call back to see if I am offered the position.

    hi everyone, what did they tell you their starting pay was? I spoke with a recruiter and she said they started new grads at 25 seems rather low for the VA area.
