COVID-19: VA/AANA Partnership Brings Employment Opportunities for CRNAs

The AANA has partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to offer employment opportunities for CRNAs while supporting our nation’s veterans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the VA Travel Nurse Corps program, the AANA and the VA have created opportunities for you to work at 157 facilities across the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) in support of COVID-19 operations. Hiring will begin immediately; VA has immediate needs in New York City and New Orleans.

This new partnership between the AANA and VA taps into your unique expertise and skillset to meet the needs of our nation’s veterans. The VA needs CRNAs’ expertise in rapid systems assessment, airway management, ventilatory support, vascular volume resuscitation, emergency preparedness, and resource management to support their facilities.

CRNAs will be assigned to interested facilities throughout VHA and may be temporarily appointed (not-to-exceed 120 days) on an intermittent, part-time, or full-time schedule in support of the VA facilities across the nation.
