VAMC-Vet's Hosp

  1. Any nurses work here? I'm interested working there and wondering how their pay and benefits stack up???? Do they have loan repayment programs? Thanks.

    Talk to the nurse recruiter at whatever VAMC you are interested in and ask those questions.

    My mom works at VAMC. Great benefits and time off. Lots of problems with the union and hosptial funding, more so than in private institutions. But overall is a great place to work as far as benefits and pay is concerned. At the one here, the RNs make more than the ones who are in private institutions. Like Sjoe said talk to the nurse recruiter.

    I work at the VA in Nashville and love it. The pay is really good, cause they pay for my education, and they have a program to pay off your student loans. Bennies are pretty doggone good too. Not all VAs are created equal, so you should go to your local one and get a feel for the facility.
