"My Dream Job."
Registered Nurse (RN):
Pros: I love the work environment at Aurora. The administration team do an excellent job of treating everybody fair and with respect. It provides a happy healthy work environment which I can pass down to my patients.

"Correctional Nursing."
Registered Nurse (RN):
Make sure you have at least 5 years of nursing experience prior to seeking a job in corrections. The inmates are very good at faking symptoms and they will know their rights better than you ever will. 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.
