    I am a veteran Air Force medic 4N031. After completing my service i used my GI Bill to complete nursing school (ADN.) I’very been applying to the veterans administration as a registered nurse. I am told I cannot work for the VA because I do not have a bachelor’s degree. The veteran administration and DOD websites are always looking for registered nurses. It does not make sense to me that they will not use a veteran, military trained, registered nurse. Here’s where I really take issue, I see on the job posting, they will take any foreign trained nurse so long as they have a certificate to work in the country I can better relate to in Vectren and have a strong desire to give back to my community. Can we change this Rule and get quality caring nurses in the VA?
