I have worked for the VA as a RN for over 20 yrs. , I love caring for the vets. BUT there has never been any leadership here, and still not. We have two campuses, biggest in our VISN, but you would think we r the poorest, always hearing about, there no money, only to find there are investigations into fraud, waste, moving money, not taking care of our guys. Supplies short, equipment in poor condition, the CLC needs an overhaul. Their building new buildings for outpatients, no regard for inpatients, 3 person rooms, with one TV, been that way for as long as I have been there. Bring your concerns to someone, and your not a team player.poi
. Senior management just pushes their agendas and wanting things done, regardless of how it is to be accomplished. There is no true concern for our guys, or the mission, when you bring concerns, you get no direction or, answers. I stay because I think it will get better, but it proably wI'll not. I feel that it is a disservice to everyone, the way this VA is ran

I thought I wanted to be a Nurse at the VA. After reading the questions and answers It sounds like there is a lot to be desired as a VA employee, no wonder the care is so poor at a VA establishment, someone needs to go in and clean house and get rid of these people who are furthering these very poor attitudes towards their job, their co-workers and their profession. I would have expected that everything was done better at a VA hospital, now I know it is done worse or not at all by the sounds of the Q&A, go to the top, complain to the person in charge, have a meeting, institute a culture of change, sort out the bad apples who are fostering the poor work place attitude, why are they allowed to get away with this, it is a real shame!
