length of employment for fha loan?

Is there a minimum length of employment for an FHA loan?  I recently started a new job and want to know how long I have to wait before I apply.  FWIW, I've not had any gaps in employment.

FHA wants to see a 2-year employment history. If your new job is in the same field as your old job, then you should be ok, as long as you can prove a consistent 2-year history. The lender will likely want a few (maybe 2) pay stubs from the new job.

OK.  They're both in healthcare, though not the same job title.

I switched firms twice in 5 years. Same field.  No problem. Good luck!
