VA Hospital Jobs

VA Hospital Job Overview

An employee at a Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital is part of the largest healthcare system in the United States. VA hospitals are also known for innovative integration of technology, plus initiatives to help staff members reduce fatigue. A person who works at a VA hospital will have various job duties that may include:
  • Monitoring patients and providing care as needed
  • Assisting in operating rooms
  • Performing diagnostic tests
  • Providing occupational or physical therapy
  • Serving food in cafeterias
  • Keeping premises clean and free of hazards
  • Maintaining security at hospitals
If you're interested in working at a VA hospital in your area, look at some of the opportunities available at your local branch because they may give you an indication about which career path to pursue.

VA Hospital Job Education Requirements

Educational requirements for a person who would like to work at a VA hospital vary greatly. As a hospital liaison or a Director of Nursing, it's usually necessary to possess a college degree. However, there are also positions such as housekeepers and cafeteria workers where formal education is less important because the emphasis is on workplace training. Generally, it's necessary for a person who works in a VA hospital to have at least a high school diploma or GED.

If a position requires a great deal of patient contact, he or she may also be required to receive certification in basic lifesaving skills and first aid. For VA hospital employees working in roles that require state licensure, it's only necessary to hold a license in one state, regardless of if it's where the job is actually performed. That's good news for people who enjoy having freedom to transfer to another VA hospital if a better opportunity awaits.

VA Hospital Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the job market for many hospital careers will remain strong and grow faster than average through 2022. Perhaps that's because, regardless of economic conditions, healthcare is a basic need. That's especially true since it's available to a broader population, thanks in large part to healthcare reform.

VA Hospital Job Salary Information

The starting salaries for VA Hospital occupations are dependent on education and experience. However, applicants can expect them to be competitive because rates are dictated by a professional standards board. Premium pay is also available to people who work overtime, on Sundays or during holidays.
