    VA JOB AMBULATORY CLINIC

    I got into the VA as a new nurse, so it is possible! I think you have a great chance to get it especially having your BSN vs ADN. Working for the VA is the best! Good luck!

    VA HBPC RN

    We work 9-hour shifts with every other Friday off. I have always thought four 10 hour shifts would work out well but have never asked if I could switch.

    VA JOB AMBULATORY CLINIC

    I think you have a very good likelihood of at least getting an interview! Make sure to study Performance Based Interview (PBI) questions as these will be the bulk of the interview. The process is long, so definitely keep your current job.

    VA JOB AMBULATORY CLINIC

    Go with VA! Even if your first job within the VA is not what you want it to be it's good to get your foot in the door now. There are many new positions that are going hybrid or full time remote. I have been with the VA for 7+ years and am working in Home Based Primary Care (half remote and half patient care). Hope this helps!

    VA Nurse Pay Scales

    Education, projects, leadership, years of experience, etc. I don't think there is an exact formula it all depends on how well you write your 9 dimensions and who's reading it. I am not a member of the board though, so this is just from my experience.
  8. Hi MALR, I really enjoyed the program! The best part is that you can do all the assignments ahead of time. I wound do most of the work the first 2-3 weeks and then cruise the rest of the quarter. Staff were always available and navigating the online courses was easy. I also really love the quarter credit system vs semester credits. I will say, I have not found a job in Informatics, however I am limited because I would like to stick with the VA. Good luck!

    Hi! I'm interested to know if you got the job or not? I am considering applying for a VA Informatics position in Nashville. I currently work for the VA, so I can say if they call your references, you are usually in good shape! Look forward to hearing about your experience.

    USI PMHNP 2019

    Thank you! I drive quite a lot for work, so podcasts will be great! I wanted to also ask you... did USI require any adolescent/pediatric hours?

    VA Nurse Pay Scales

    As a new grad (BSN), you are going to start at that level. I don't think there is anything you could have done because you don't have experience. What you can do now is focus on getting your Nurse 2 by joining committees, doing in-services, projects, etc. Good luck!

    psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner salary

    PMHNP Man, Do you mind me asking what VA you work at? I am a PMHNP student currently working for the VA in Home Based Primary Care and am hoping to stay with the VA after certification. How do you like your current role?
