“My experience as an employee of Overton Brooks VA Medical Center has been a truly positive one. I’ve had the opportunity to work in several settings, including an inpatient ward and an outpatient specialty clinic. There’s excellent camaraderie among my co-workers, each sharing an unwavering commitment to providing the best care for our Veterans. And the resources available to employees are unmatched by the private sector—I’ve received specialized training, free classes, tuition reimbursement, several federal benefits and much more. I also have the luxury of being able to utilize my nursing license anywhere in the United States.”

“I’m grateful to be a part of VA. It feels amazing to make a difference in the lives of our Nation’s heroes, and I highly recommend joining our extraordinary team.”
