Advanced Practice Nurses in Corrections?

  1. 0 I am currently completing my BSN and will then complete my MSN and have dual master's in nursing education as well as become a CNS.
    Is there anyone out there working as a NP or CNS in a correctional setting?

    There are several here. I was in Corrections as NP at one time.

    Good luck with the remainder of your nursing program.

    I am trying to figure out what kind of CNS jobs there are in corrections. In the huge prisons, are there "teaching" type positions available? Unfortunately, CNS's do not appear to have prescriptive authority in California, which I considered moving to.

    Most of our local prisons have NP's, and they get paid more than NP's in the hospital whom actually take a pay cut compared to staff nurses.
