i am an lvn in CA and have always wanted to work in corrections ever since graduating lvn school. I have already past the "self assessment they have on the cdcr website. I have a few questions, including some for lvns already working in corrections.
-Lvn's, do you have I.V certification, how much more of an advantage does an lvn with IV cert. have over one without it, do corrections really seek lvns with this certification?
-I've seen a lot of threads of new grads starting out in correctional facilities, for all the nurses who started out in corrections as a "new grad", how did you do it? what steps did you take to increase your chances of getting an interview?
-how long does the process take? from applying for a vacancy and getting an application in the mail?
