    VA Hiring Process

    All in all DEPENDING who is your HR contact and the govt feelings that day, it can take MONTHS. From the time offered a position it took 4 mos, and that was me calling every week the last 4 since they were always loosing papers, or we need this or.....ect PS your orientation/probation is 2 years long no matter how many years you are a RN

    I'm tired of it!

    I'm tired of saying "Im sorry " for every thing a pt does not like to apease them. Tired the family trying to get my attention across from my room while I have a emergency and they know it," Well pt "x" is out of water, we have been waiting 10 minutes. What is wrong with you people, did you not see the call light?" as a example.

    Failed again....reallly bummed

    Yes I was one of the few they let retest and also took care of the fee. I wrote the Dean less then 12 hours after failing, I do not speak of what the instructor did to single me out. The Dean was aware as another student actually called and wrote a letter not telling me, I found out later, seeing what happened an a staff member aparently also notified the Dean. I hope that instructor who was so horrable( she also taught at a local Nursing college), never teaches again. Please get AWAY from the midwest, and go to NPAC.

    The line and plunger

    It dependson the light. They wnt the plunger in the middle perfect split. On one exam it took 2 instructors since both saw two different things, a while to finally fail me the one time. One saw it right , one saw it wrong. either way that plunger better be a perfect split and not a hair off.
