    There is a large one in Phoenix, a larger one in Tucson, and a small one in Prescott. The one in Phoenix uses team nursing except in the ICUs and ER. If you like team nursing then you would like it there.

    I've heard some really good comments about the VA in Tucson. Really updated equipment and well-staffed. Perhaps anyone who presently works there could elaborate...
    I am considering working there once I complete my RN...

    Hi, Nysloss
    I don't know much about the VA in Tucson, It seems very nice, I was offered a job there with a starting wage of 21.28 an hour with a 10% differential for off tours, ie pm's and night's weekend differential of 25%.
    I turned the job down. Hope that helps.

    That's a terrible wage. The differentials sound good, and I know their bennies are awesome, but the rate is awful!
