    Have you worked at a Hospital,then VA Hospital?

    thank you. i now have an interview for next friday, she said it's very busy, 5 patients each and it's a rehab floor (surgical rehab, not drug rehab), it'd be midnights, i work days now. :( the ONLY reason i would do this is for the pension that my parents keep saying i will need, as i am not married. my current job matches IRA money up to 6%. too bad change is slow at the VA. geez if we make a valid suggestion to my manager, she talks with the DON and it's implemented within a day! I'm serious! haha. also i have a great manager. i sure wish everyone didnt scare me with the whole i need a pension thing. i'm 40, divorced, and i will not get married again :). what is TJC?
  2. Have you worked at a Hospital,then VA Hospital? Which did you prefer? I've been contemplating applying at the local VA hospital, though i like my current job and the people.

    Is the VA a good place to work?

    oh wow. ok, i misunderstood? by the way, thanks for answering my post. on the website when I was applying it has retirement benefits laid out for the "public" when hired (as opposed to a vet). it said, a match upto a certain percent, soc sec, and the flexible spending that you use for meds and dr appts. even my dad read it and said, "you either get a pension OR you get soc sec, you wont get both. so if they'd give you soc sec, you won't get a pension". then i read about all the lengthy paper work to prove myself to get a certain pay level, and or to ever get a raise, even before i start. then i thought , geez is it worth it? How many years do you work there before you qualify for a pension?

    What EMAR charting software does VA use?

    thank you!!! also i keep reading about the great retirement benefits. what are they? most large companies match IRA contributions at 6%, and i have good health insurance. also only a VET working at the VA gets a pension in 2018, so what is good about retirement benefits an R.N. who is not a former military person? I have an interview tomorrow, but i am thinking about cancelling it, cuz actually i like my current job and i make 34.25 an hour now

    What EMAR charting software does VA use?

    well I was about to prepare for an interview with the VA. After reading about all the bureaucracy, I'm pretty sure I will cancel my interview, especially since I like where I work fairly well.
  8. anyone know what EMAR charting software does the VA use? specifically Bay Pines, but I guess they may all be the same. Thanks!

    Patients will do the complaining for you. I've never found I had to say anything the people with the big mouth always get themselves in trouble
