VA North Texas Health Care System
Nurses Recruitment Fair Set Aug. 12 at Dallas VAMC
VA North Texas Health Care System has an organizational culture where nursing excellence is valued as essential for delivery of quality healthcare to those who served America. With a diverse care environment, including acute and chronic conditions in hospital, ambulatory and skilled nursing settings, VA is an excellent place to develop a nursing career.
A Nurses hiring fair is scheduled at Dallas VA Medical Center on Saturday, August 12, 9 am – 2 pm in the Atrium to recruit RNs in these areas:
- Acute Care
- Geriatric Extended Care
- Critical Care-ICUs
- Emergency Department
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Operating Room
VA nurses are a dynamic and diverse group of honored, respected and compassionate professionals. Gwendella Robinson, RN, began her VA career in 2009. She is a Navy Veteran and served more than 20 years active duty and deployed to provide medical support during Desert Shield/Desert Storm/Operation Iraqi Freedom. Robinson retired as a Nurse Corps Officer in 2007 and serves now as the Associate Director for Patient Care Services at VA North Texas.
“Every patient in a hospital setting has been touched by a nurse,” said Robinson. At VA North Texas, nurses have a unique opportunity to create an environment conducive to healing visible and invisible wounds of those who have borne the battle in military service. With more attention to preventive health care, Veterans and the general population are living longer, so nursing care is more in demand than ever before.
Quality nurses are always in high demand, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there will be a shortage of approximately 800,000 nurses by 2020. As the largest health care system in the U.S., VA offers competitive salaries, work/life balance and education support. Robinson added, “VA benefits for nurses include tuition assistance to further develop your career and expand your skills.”
