  1. VA PBNR in Dallas

    And trust me, we all went into it completely blind! Literally, Blind! Communication is one thing they know they need to work on and they are trying to fix that. But there is a saying at the VA……. You have to ask Joseph, to ask Mary, to ask Jesus, to ...
  2. VA PBNR in Dallas

    So, you aren’t “guaranteed” a job but you are if that makes sense. They invest a lot into the PBNR residents. Lots of time, money, effort, etc. everyone in my cohort got the unit they wanted. But if you don’t get your 1st choice you should be able to...

    Hi! So I’m almost done with PBNR. It is a very good program, nothing like it anywhere else. Think of it as if your an MD going through residency. You get to see it all! Every dept and learn what you like and don’t like. I didn’t learn my pay till day...

    They currently have my packet. Since I’m a new nurse, they gave us a start date but no other details. By any chance are you in the PBNR program for new hires?
  10. VA hiring process 2020

    I’m in the process right now. How long does it take for the official offer? I sent in paper work last week and were supposed to start next month but I still don’t have my firm offer from HR. So I am selected and told I have a job but nothing else. Ho...
