Advanced Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners play integral roles within VA. The compassionate care they provide day in and day out is setting a new standard for Veteran care. VA Nurses have the unique opportunity to improve Veterans’ lives while advancing their professional career. Along with the rewarding work of giving back to our deserving Veteran population, being a VA employee also makes you part of the largest, most technologically advanced health care system in the United States. You’ll also receive robust benefits, like competitive salaries, generous vacation time, flexible schedules, tuition reimbursement, extensive educational programs and an array of retirement planning options.
As an Advanced Practice Nurse or Nurse Practitioner with VA, you have so many options to expand your skill sets, and the autonomy to choose your own path.
