Happy Monday! I wanted to take the time to provide an update on our ongoing campaign to recruit mental health providers to work at VA. In April 2012, it was announced that VA would hire 1900 Additional Providers . Since that time, mental health care providers continue to answer the call and have applied for positions listed on www.Vacareers.va.gov.

I want to thank each applicant for their interest in serving Veterans at VA. With the large amount of interest we have received, we are doing our best to get back to all of the applicants in a timely manner. We have also identified varying needs nationwide, adding to the challenge in some locations.  If you have not been accepted for hire as of yet, and your desire is to serve Veterans, I encourage you to continue trying. With your commitment to serve Veterans, we are having good success in most parts of the country. I encourage everyone to review remote or rural areas also for consideration in all occupations. 

As National Healthcare Recruiters are limited, we are focusing most of their efforts for follow up with Psychiatrist positions. If you are or know a Psychiatrist that desires to serve Veterans, I urge you to send your CV to VHAAdvertising@va.gov TODAY!

If you are not a Psychiatrist, please review openings and apply at www.VAcareers.va.gov. Due to the large volume of interest, we are unable to respond to inquiries other than those for Psychiatrist at this time.

Thank you!
