The Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center will host a hiring and on-boarding fair this Saturday, June 4, to fill vacancies for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and housekeeping aides.

According to a Wednesday release, applicants will be selected and given tentative offers for work at the event after participating in pre-employment checks such as physicals, fingerprints and background checks.

The VA is offering a recruitment incentive for all RN’s and LPN’s up to $10,000 in exchange for a year-long obligation.

Salary offers depend on experience but ranges for RN’s run from $53,407 to $97,887, and $28,758 to $52,341 for LPN’s. Housekeeping aides could make $16.14 to $18.83.

The event will be held at the VA’s sports atrium from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
