    The VA is a great place to work. You start out with 2 weeks of classroom mixed with orientation and then spend 3 months working with a preceptor. The hospital staff really wants you to feel comfortable working and improving on skills. You get paid as a nurse and start collecting on that great 5 weeks vacation....Plus, our veterans are a great clientel to take care of.
