Hello all.

I'm a new VA Nurse with 16 years Rn experience with 13 of those with BSN. I  didn't know how to write for my entry pay so my Nurse 2 Step 3. I was told since I am within my first year, I could possibly skip some steps based on my proficiency.

I am on a committee and made some strides with that group that got implemented.

I have to turn it in soon.

Thank you in advance.

I've never heard of getting re-boarded after starting. Check with HR I believe as a Nurse 2 you get an automatic step raise every 2 years. At this point your proficiency would be written as you were trying to obtain a nurse 3. I agree you were def started a few steps too low.

The years between step raises depend on which step you are. The lower steps can be one year and the upper steps three years.
