Spinal cord injury (SCI) nursing at VA is a challenging and rewarding career that’s essential to the lives of many of our nation’s heroes. On our outstanding team, you’ll treat acute and chronically ill patients with complex physical and psychosocial needs, using your advanced clinical knowledge and skills. And as you build on your experience in acute care, ambulatory care or rehabilitation nursing, you will help drive desired outcomes such as reduced admissions and urgent care visits. It’s all part of our mission to improve Veterans’ lives. Opportunities are currently available at the following locations:
