    VA hiring process 2020

    I agree the process can vary between the different VAs. Have you heard anything new? I have done everything there was to be done, just waiting on my firm offer and salary for a permanent position.

    And did you hear anything yet? I am also waiting, finished physical/urine/blood last week. Fingerprinting, Vetpro, and equip completed last month. I was told by HR that they have all of my reference checks completed and are in the process of verifying my employment and education hx. As of now, my application has not been to the board yet...

    Great!
  6. I worked for the VA for 3 years. Hopefully, you get the position (claiming it!!). The starting salary should be around $80-$85k/year.

      It was just a personal decision. Have you heard anything? The hiring process can take months it's a hurry up and wait type of thing.

      No, I have not heard anything yet. I have the manager's e-mail and office phone number...but I really do not want to bother them...as you stated it is a long process, I just really wish I would already have some sort of an offer, of course not a firm one yet...

    Interview @ Houston TX VA

    Hello AN, Happy new year to every single one of you! I have an interview at the Houston TX ED coming up. A little bit about myself, I have prior government nursing experience in the ED, have my BSN and CEN along with the regular alphabet soup:) Here are my questions: what's the nurse : patient ratio in the ED? will I have 4 x esi 2 for 12 hours rotating through my rooms? how is the support staff? are there techs available and willing to help? va nurses are title 38 right? yet I found some posts on AN were VA nurses stated they don't get double pay for (worked) holidays, which I remember was a title 38 regulation... What grade/level/step can I expect from the VA for 3-4 years ed experience (BSN, ACLS, PALS, TNCC, CEN)? how is that particular va overall? Hoping for some insight! Thanks ya'll!
