VA nurses may have to return pay raises

More than 900 Veterans Affairs nurses may be asked to return as much as eight years' worth of salary boosts after federal auditors determined they were given those raises by mistake.  In a letter to nurses dated April 19, Marie Weldon, director of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System, said officials will help the 920 affected nurses apply for waivers so they won't have to pay back the money, but that there are no guarantees.  “Each individual affected by this salary overpayment will be provided information and assistance in requesting a waiver of the salary overpayment,” the letter said. “Please be assured that we are doing all we can to minimize the overall impact to you as an affected employee.”
