On Boarding Process for New VISN 2 Employees
  1. Pre-Employment Physical and Fingerprinting Requirements
    Federal law requires all candidates for employment at the VA to clear a pre-employment physical and pre-employment fingerprinting before their first day of work. Your HR Specialist will contact you to schedule an appointment for the physical with our Employee Health Service. As part of a pre-employment security requirement, you can get fingerprinted on the day of or prior to your scheduled pre-employment physical. No appointment is necessary for pre-employment fingerprinting.
  2. Required Forms to Complete
    As part of the in-processing requirement, you must complete and submit the forms from our new employee package. Below are links to "On Boarding Forms" checklists for designated positions. To open and print the checklist, click on the link for the position for which you are being considered. The checklist will assist you with keeping track of your progress on completing the forms. You can access the forms by selecting each link on the checklist. You must print and complete each form and submit them as part of your application package to your Human Resources Specialist. All forms must be brought with you on the first day of your boarding process.
