May 6th marks the beginning of National Nurses Week, an important time for all of us to celebrate the nurses that make it possible for VA to meet the needs of America’s Veterans. As one of the nation’s largest employer of nurses, VA understands the truly crucial role they play in delivering top quality care. No other health care professional is closer to the Veterans we care for than our nurses. Our Veterans and their loved ones rely on them for their compassionate care, and VA relies on them for providing expert, top-quality patient care. And that reliance is well placed.

To be a nurse at VA is to change lives every day. It’s making real connections with our Veterans within an organization that encourages a lifetime of learning and growing. At VA, nurses work alongside renowned physicians and healthcare professionals in an integrated model of care for the best treatment options for Veterans. And as the demand for more complex nursing care increases, nurses are reaching new levels of skill and expertise.

If you’re a nurse or nursing student, consider bringing your abilities to VA. We have a variety of nursing careers to consider, including Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Nurse Anesthetists, Nursing Assistants, Nurse Executives, Psychiatric Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Vocational Nurses, Travel Nurses, and more.

    Just like NCOs run the the military, nurses run “the medical.” The nurses in the NorCal V.A. system make me feel like I have a big family of aunts, moms and sisters, and a brother or two. Bless you and thank you all.
