Just curious about what the pay rate for RN's are at a VA hospital. I worked in a VA hospital 10 years ago as an aide and made over $7 an hour.

Huganurse is correct! Working in the VA system can be nice. But to move up education is a must and the VA I worked in was not very "pro" education. Not given opportunities to attend education offerings. Funds or assistance never available! Benefits are great, a lot of paid vacation days that most of the civillian sectors don't recognize. Pay rates adjusted with local hospital RN pay salaries in order to keep competetive with area hospitals. Changes are being made to attract nurses, worth checking out!
