There has never been a better time to explore your career potential. Caring for our nation's Veterans has been a promise worth keeping for the Department of Veterans Affairs. At the Oklahoma City VA Health Care System, it is also our mission to support the education and advancement of our nurses, whom inspire us all with their own acts of heroism. 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.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.
To support new graduate nurses, the Oklahoma City VA Health Care System partners with the University of Oklahoma College of Nursing through a Post Baccalaureate Nurse Residency (PBNR) and a RN Transition to Practice Program (TTP). The residency program is accredited through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The PBNR program is open to post baccalaureate graduate nurses who are assuming their first role in nursing while having not been out of school longer than 12 months. The TTP program is open to ADN and BSN graduate nurses who are assuming their first role in nursing while having not been out of school longer than 12 months. To learn more about these programs, please reach out to the Nurse Recruiter.
