    I worked at Correctional Medical Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Never a dull moment; lots of good people to work with; your input is heard

    Cons

    Top-heavy administration; lots of rules that change frequently; easy to get overwhelmed so you really have to take care of yourself -- definitely not a nurturing environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain stability and clarity; communication is the key

    Pros

    You provide different levels of care within one setting. There are opportunities for providing routine, urgent, and emergent care. You will see a variety of health issues that will allow you to gain experience in different areas of health.

    Cons

    The environment that you work within is very stressful. Being a correctional nurse is not for everyone, so you should weigh you options and personality very carefully before starting a career in correctional nursing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize employee interactions

    Inmates call personnell names, you see very personal and ilicit behaviours, staffing can be competitive, dangerous environment.
