    Getting paid

    Hi. I started working my first ever travel contract on 10/27/2021. I really like the hospital, etc. I have not, however, gotten paid yet from my agency. The agency is blaming this on the hospital and the hospital is blaming it on the agen...

    Words of Wisdom?

    I think my biggest concern is the extremely short orientation time. How long does it usually take to get in the swing of things? This will be a whole new charting system, etc. When do you start feeling comfortable?

    Seattle VA Hospital (Puget Sound)

    Hi. I'm hoping one of you can help me; I'm trying to get on with the VA system. I have been a nurse for 13 years and work in UR, appeals, case management, clinical documentation improvement, etc. I had a good interview with the Puget Sound VA on Fr...
  7. Thanks. I have an interview on Thursday. If you can think of anything that I should ask, please let me know. You've helped me a great deal! Thanks!!
  8. Thank you. If you don't mind me asking another question, can you tell me what your opinion is regarding the patient acuity? I'm wondering how it compares to private psych. I saw another post saying it was less acute. Would you agree with that?

    How does the VA extend an offer?

    Wow...I wasn't aware you could accept two offers. This is great info to have. Good luck with the rest of your process! I'd love to hear of your progress and how things are going. The timelines are stressful. Thanks again, EH

    How does the VA extend an offer?

    Hello. To any of you nurses that work for the VA Hospital system, how did they extend your offer (telephone call versus email?) and how long did it take after your interview? Thanks! 2ndChance
  11. Hello. I'm wondering if any of you could tell me if there's a difference between psych nursing at the VA's versus the private facilities? I have applied for a couple of Mental Health RN jobs and am wondering how, if at all, it differs. I would appre...

    Humana Employees

    Wow. I'm sorry to hear that. I wish you luck in finding something else. Is there any good place to be a nurse anymore? I can't do patient care due to injuries.

    Humana Employees

    I know you wrote this post a while ago, but I was just wondering if you were still an at home Care Manager with Humana and if you were still enjoying it. I am supposed to start training for a similar position through a subcontracted agency. The fle...
