Donna, a nurse at the Los Angeles VA Medical Center, can tell you exactly why she’s worked at VA for over 27 years: it’s personal as well as professional. Her top three reasons for being a Nurse at VA:
1. Growth Opportunities
“VA offers opportunities for growth…from being a bedside nurse to being a nursing administrator or researcher or even an IT specific nurse.”
2. Generous Leave
“In the VA system, a nurse earns enough vacation time….it gives you an opportunity to spend time with your family when you need it.”
3. Taking Care of our Veterans
“What greater way to give back to your community than to serve those who’ve given so much to us?”
