Sorry but it makes no difference. I'm not a vet. My first facility, the hiring process took 2 months going in as a student nurse. When I got an official job, it took 3 months. When I transferred to another facility, it took about 3 months. With this last transfer, I interviewed and found out I had the job about 2 days later. My vetpro alone took 2 1/2 months. Nothing about it changed, I just had to sign it. The entire process has been 6 months. So it is totally based on HR department and vetpro. Has nothing to do with prior military experience when it comes to the VA. So right now, the recruiter is organized where you are. Let's hope when she sends your paperwork to HR that the organization continues.
