    Seeking Advice from Veterans Affairs FNPs

    I am considering continuing my employment with the VA as an FNP once I graduate from my program in late 2019. For those of you who are FNPs working in the VA system, do you have any guidance, pros vs. cons, advice, etc. ? I have been an ER RN for 20 years and I am currently on a military leave of absence from my job with the VA at an ambulatory care clinic. I have been with the facility for about 4 years and I am a Level II (Step 8). Thank you for any guidance that you may have.

    Question About Working For The VA

    For those of you who are working in the VA as an NP, did you work in the system as an RN? I am currently on a military leave of absence from the VA and I will return to the VA as an RN until I finish school. I have heard that some new grad NPs end up making less money than they did as an RN. Any thoughts or general advice about working as an NP within the VA?
