Registered Nurse (RN) in Pikeville:
"Correctional Nursing."
Make sure you have at least 5 years of nursing experience prior to seeking a job in corrections.

Many administrations in prisons are still on the "good old boy" system and the job politics can be brutal. Many prisons do not have adequate staffing of Officers or Nurses. Prisoners are getting more and more violent. I plan to get out of Correctional nursing.
