Can you retain a professional license after a felony?

Whether a license can be obtained despite a past felony conviction will depend on the type of license, how long ago the felony was, whether you were honest about disclosing these facts before applying or if you lied about it, and whether your background will interfere with your ability to do that job with an acceptable level of risk to the well-being and safety of others. This determination is made by state boards, national associations, and committees within various professions. For example, a past manslaughter and drug conviction with time served may not stop you from being a lawyer- but may stop you form being a registered nurse. A fraud conviction might stop you from doing either. Ultimately it is up to the governing organizations.

Can a convicted felon work for US Department of Veterans Affairs?

The answer is, it depends. The major variables are what you were convicted of, how long ago the conviction was, and (probably most importantly) whether or not you are honest about the conviction during the application and hiring process. I have heard of federal employees being terminated after hiring for not disclosing a felony conviction - the conviction itself wasn't the problem, it was the falsifying of the application that led to the problems.
