I am a OR Nurse I have had my ASN for 10 years. I lef the VA over a year ago and was at a Nurse 2 step 3. I was bored at the time as we had no orthopedic surgeons. I am now driving far for work an another OR and want to go back. I know I can get hired back as I left on great terms and was successful there. I was told because I have my ASN and its been over a year I cant come back at a Nurse 2 will have to be back at a Nurse 1. Anyone have any experience with this? What else can I do for boarding process to get better pay?
