Our mission, your career

Nurses are the backbone of VA’s health system and have a profound impact on the lives of Veterans every day. As you consider a career in nursing with VA, keep in mind that there are many benefits that come with the job – beyond the greatest mission in all of health care.

We offer our employees strong starting salaries based on education, training and experience. Our flexible schedules offer plenty of downtime to reset your work-life balance. With 13 to 26 paid vacation/personal days, 13 sick days annually with no limit on accumulation, and 11 paid federal holidays each year, we offer lots of time to enjoy all the good things that a place like West Virginia has to offer.

Taking the next step in your VA career couldn’t be easier for nurses. We offer unrestricted licensing and relocation, so typically you won’t lose any benefits, accumulated paid leave or pay when you transfer from another VA facility. If the time comes when you choose to move on, you’ll be eligible to work at any of our 1,300 facilities across the nation and in some U.S. territories.
