    Are there any program that would allow me to become a BSN thru VA And then work at a VA facility.
    I am a wife of a disabled veteran. Please advise

    the problem is getting rid of the person that dislikes the patients, not everyone is suited to provide patient care
    Then there are those employies that hate the system

    Va can’t be fixed! New Sec. maybe good guy but can rearrange the chairs of titanic so many way. We are treated like welfare cases, not CUSTOMERS, who if not at VA employees would be on street. Private sector would never tolerate attitudes and behaviors.

    I am dumbfounded where the Atlanta VA and its hiring practices are concerned. As an Honorably discharged Vet., Prior Federal Civilian out of work due to husbands retirement from active duty and relocation to home of record, I was called one year after my initial application for employment to accept a position. I was then jerked around, told to complete countless forms and then informed the job was being resent and to look on USA jobs for a new cert. 99 out of 100 of the job offers are for Current VA Employees only, the volunteer orientations are FULL until August, mind you that’s what they told me last year and when I called for Aug. That was full to. All I can say is give me my disability – pay me and I’ll leave you alone.

    The VA does have a lot of messed up stuff going on, but we also have a lot of dedicated employees who will do whatever they can to make sure the Veterans get what they need. As an employee and a Veteran, I am working to help make the system better for everybody. When I see something that is wrong and I have a solution, I ensure those above me are aware. How long will it take before things change? I have no clue, but it will never change for the better unless those of us who work there make the effort. I don’t care how messed up the top of the chain is, I will do my job and take care of my Veterans.

    As for the person who thinks those of us who work or desire to work for the VA are nuts. Is your workplace perfect? Don’t think so. No place is and only working together can we make a place or system better.

      I’m glad you’re not part of the VA, we vets appreciate those who. Care for us and you have a very nasty attitude. Things are changing but like everything it’s going to take some time. It will also require the right kind of people!! Not ones that feel entitled!

        My comments are address to Richard Huff?

        Most work places are not health care! Your correct nothing is perfect, but VAMC’ s treat veterans like dirt and this can only be changed by letting those persons in charge go ( fired) no big retirement, nothing. Only 90 fired from system last year, more than that go from companies half the VA’s size weekly. IV been around a long time and it’s the 1970’s in the VA again.

    Anyone who wants to work for the VA medical, are nuts!!! The crap the VA makes them do is pure stupidity!! I had a Director of a VA hospital wanted me to give my RN daughter, her info and after talking to nurses and Dr.’s I had to tell him “NO” and explained to him why and most the stuff I brought up with, he agreed to!! If hospital management, Dr’s and nurses are not happy the way they are treated, no wonder the Vet’s are treated like crap!! They always say, “crap goes down hill”, and sadly the Vet is treated like the bottom!! DO NOT APPLY WITH THE VA MEDICAL UNTIL THE VERY TOP OF THE VA CAN UNDERSTAND AND FIX THE TREATMENT OF VALUABLE MEDICAL EMPLOYEES!!!!

      Richard….the things you say (actually you didnt say anything… say you were very vague would be an understatement) may be true, but as a disabled veteran who has spent a H U G E amount of time there (20 surgeries, and all the pre- and post- op appointments), I think my “body of work” quslifies me to say that the worst problem isn’t the level of knowledge that the personnel has, BUT….. the unbelievably sorry work ethic, and flat out rudeness to veterans. So….if things ARE as bad as you say professionaly, then….. you add to it the horrid personal treatment and I have to mentally preparemyself for each surgery’s rehab time! I have had such terrible things said to me that you wouldn’t believe! BUT…. I also have had a FEW really wonderful and dedicated RNs! The problem is….. you can see right away, that these exceptional workers are continually “put upon” by the others because…..THEY CAN!!! AND THEY KNOW THEY CAN! That’s sad…..

    Hello, VA,
    I am Shelly Mahan. I am from a “Military Family” ( Maternal & Paternal Grandfather, Uncles, and Cousins; Father, Spouse, Son, Nephew, and Son-N- Law), but when I went to serve in Desert Storm we discovered I was expecting twins! I have a BA in Psychology (substance abuse concentration) with a 3.95 GPA. I have my Addiction Professional Internist Certification (APIT) in Indiana. I have been accepted to complete my BSN (4 year RN) at Marian University. I am looking for a career with the VA. I am in need of a scholarship, but wonder if I’m allowed to be on this link if I am not a Veteran? I have dedicated my life to our American Veterans and hope someone can help guide me to making my dream a reality. I Thank You All For Serving!
    Thank You,
    Shelly R. Mahan APIT
