Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has thousands of opportunities for nurses and nurse practitioners that are posted annually for recruitment. VA nursing opportunities come with excellent pay and a VA benefit package that increases your salary up to 39% as a total compensation package. The federal bureaucracy makes searching, applying and hired into one of these positions a monumental task. The VA hiring process can be overwhelming for anyone. All you want to do is apply and get the job, but this is not possible unless you have the skills to navigate the complicated hiring process. The VA hiring process is stacked against you with rules and regulations galore. To make it worse, the people who interpret these rules and regulations are sometimes poorly trained, understaffed and overwhelmed by the volume of applications they receive. To help you overcome these obstacles, we offer you this book. Together, Gary & Lynn Strickland have 50 years of experience working for the federal government. With the knowledge contained in this book, your chances of receiving a job offer as a nurse will increase greatly. We can’t guarantee you will be hired but we certainly can increase your odds greatly by transferring our knowledge to you. Understanding how to search for nursing opportunities, how to create a VA resume and understanding the entire process will help you tremendously in beginning your career with the VA.
