Just as we are dedicated to caring for America's heroes, we are equally committed to meeting the needs of our valued nurses. This commitment is demonstrated in many ways, but perhaps most tangibly in the range of federal employee benefits we offer.

The VA is a place where heroes are embraced and every day brings new opportunities to care for America's heroes and celebrate the honor of serving those who have served us all.

We regard our Nurses as heroes, too. They serve our Nation by caring for the veterans who have risked their lives to protect our freedom. We are inspired by their compassion and passion for nursing. We support their education and advancement and provide the technology and tools they need to perform at the highest level.

VA job opportunities worldwide are available at USAJOBS and/or VA Careers. You may also  download Application Forms, print, complete, and mail to the location(s) of your choice.
