    Congratulations on your offer, mmrn18! Are you guys currently completing the online credentialing process?
    Thanks! and congratulations to you too!
    Do you mean Vetpro? Yes I started it, but it's taking a while. It looks like we won't be starting for at least another month. Apparently none of my references have been contacted yet.

    Hi, how did you guys apply to the VA's TTP program? Does it require you to already have your RN license? Thank you!
    I believe you have to have your license before applying! Jobs are usually posted on USA GOV I think.

    I also started and am waiting to submit Vetpro. I don't think my references have been contacted at this point. I'm curious about when fingerprinting and physicals will be scheduled.

    Where's everybody at in the hiring process? I completed everything, but waiting for EQIP to clear and then Standards Board to review my file for salary determination. I'm hoping to start either August 6th or 20th...

    I've completed VetPro and my physical/fingerprinting. I haven't started the EQIP process yet and I'm still waiting to for the board to review my file also.

    Also, were you given those dates in August by HR?
  7. by   RN0700
    Yes, by HR... they onboard every 2 weeks, so it just depends on when your paperwork clears...

    Has anyone received a start date from HR yet?

    Also if anyone has completed Equip, how long did the process take until you were cleared? I'm currently waiting to begin the Equip process and am concerned it may take months. Thank you!

    Haven't received an official offer yet, but have been in contact with the HR Specialist assigned to me and they say I should be finalized early next week and start on Sept. 4th. But who knows, they may end up pushing my date back 2 weeks again. Their process is, obviously, very inefficient, so it requires you to keep following up with HR, and even reaching out to those who interviewed you for the TTP program to advocate for yourself. It can be a disheartening hiring process but the best thing you can do is be a bug in their ear. As for EQIP, I think mine took about a month. Here's hoping we all start soon.

    I'm sure you've gone through orientation already so congratulations in advance! Have you been placed on a unit yet?

    Hello!
    I recently applied to the latest TTP opening (Nov 2018), did anyone else apply?
    For those of you who have been through this process about how long was it from application to calls for interviews? I have yet to hear anything, granted its only been a week since the job closed.
    The usajobs.gov job announcement stated they are looking to start Jan/Feb, however, knowing how slow the federal government is that seems unlikely.
