Nurse with a patient

 

Components of VA Nursing

Professional nursing supports the mission of the VA health care system by providing state-of-the-art, cost-effective nursing care to patients and families as they respond to illness and health issues.

VA Nursing Service integrates a wide array of services, encompassing patient care, clinical practice, education, research, and administration.

In addition to medical, surgical and psychiatric units, VA nurses work in intensive care, spinal cord injury, geriatric, dialysis, blind rehabilitation, specialty care (such as diabetes clinics), hospice, domiciliary, oncology, and organ transplant units.

VA nurses provide a continuum of care across primary, ambulatory, acute, geriatrics, rehabilitation, and extended care settings. They work in outpatient clinics, nursing home units, and home-based primary care programs.

VA nurses proudly serve America’s heroes by practicing the art and science of nursing in order to provide holistic, evidence-based, high quality care.
