Nursing is the single largest occupation at VA, with a projected growth of nearly 16% in the next four years as the population ages and many professionals leave the workforce. What’s more, Americans continue to identify nurses as the most trusted professionals in America according to a Gallup poll that ranks professions for their honesty and ethical standards. They are in high demand and are held in high regard—the career outlook for nurses has never been better.
At VA, nurses enjoy many benefits, including a healthy work/life balance, continuing education opportunities, career mentoring and competitive salaries. Another benefit is the opportunity to work at brand new, state-of-the-art, tertiary care medical facilities.
One such medical facility is the Orlando VA Medical Center in Orlando, Florida. The new medical facility will open in 2015 with 134-inpatient beds and we are actively recruiting for inpatient nurses for our Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Medical/Surgical Unit, Inpatient Mental Health Unit and the Emergency Department.
The Orlando VA Medical Center is located in “Medical City,” otherwise known as the Lake Nona community, and is centrally located to downtown areas, shopping, Orlando attractions and the beautiful beaches for which Florida is famous.
The new facility is located minutes from the airport in the heart of Medical City, along with other prestigious medical research institutes, including the University of Central Florida’s new College of Medicine and a highly specialized Children’s Hospital. Florida is recognized for its warm sunny climate, abundant housing options and has no state income tax.
