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.

Sorry you didn’t get a response. Om

onboarding as a RN as I couldn’t get a bite on a NP position in over a year. Hoping to transfer to NP maybe after a year.

I'm sorry. Never saw this. It is difficult in my facility to transfer from an RN position to an NP position, but not impossible. It seems easier if you want to stay in the clinics. Do you have specific questions?
