VA encourages persons with disabilities to apply. The health related positions in VA are covered by Title 38, and are not covered by the Schedule A excepted appointment authority.

OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise – “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” – by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s Veterans.

How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

The Kansas City VA is embarking on a journey of moving beyond performance measure and becoming the Healthcare System Veterans Trust and Choose. Our patients depend on us and we depend on professionals like you.

If you are interested in being a part of a LEAN organization and putting other’s needs before your own this may be the organization for you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our doors. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis.  Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure.  Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. By applying for this position you have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you.

With the initiation of cultural change, along with knowledge and tools for change, the Kansas City VA will continue to move towards a practice of continuous improvement.  In the endeavor, we recognize that this change will not occur suddenly, that dedicated individuals like yourself will be required, that leadership involvement is necessary, and employee engagement paramount. 

As a 157 bed medical, surgical, and psychiatric facility, the Kansas City VA provides comprehensive health care through primary care and tertiary care in subspecialty medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is also a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri Kansas City. Take a closer look at Kansas City at www.thinkkc.com.

This announcement establishes a open continuous announcement of eligible applicants to be considered for this position. The What Happens Next area of the announcement provides additional information on the referral process for this type of announcement.

Duties

Our facility is seeking individuals who possess good organizational skills which enable completion of work, a demonstrated ability to assume leadership and the ability to establish effective communication with patients, families, visitors and members of the interdisciplinary team.

These positions report to the Nurse Manager of the assigned unit.

Critical Care: These positions are for registered nurses who manage acutely ill patients who may require ventilatory assistance and hemodynamic monitoring, and who continuously monitor patient's cardiovascular status, recognize abnormal patterns, and intervene effectively. This includes interpreting data, initiating appropriate actions when problems are identified, and monitoring appropriate therapeutic nursing measures, as required.

As a Staff Nurse you will provide prescribed medical treatment and personal care services to ill and injured veterans. Duties include:

· documenting observations, assessments, and changes in patient's condition;
· collaborating with health team members to facilitate positive patient care outcomes;
