Any travel nurses working corrections?

  1. 0
    I've worked in corrections for the past 6 1/2 yrs (4yrs MedSurg Ortho prior to this). I am very interested in travel nursing. Is anyone working in corrections as a travel nurse? Any info such as places, travel agencies, hospitals with correctional floors would be greatly appreciated! I have worked in a max security prison with death row and have experience in emergencies (minor and major), infection control and infectious diseases (much training in HIV/AIDS), psych (over 1 yr working psych only), infirmary, and management experience. No recent hospital experience though.

    I work for NYS Dept of Corrections and we have 4 travel nurses at our facility in Elmira NY and 1 travel nurse at the other correctional facility across town. They are all employed by Nursefinders.

    Supplemental Health Care is the prime contractor for agency nurses with UTMB-CMC (Texas). I'm with them and they have done alright by me. I use the Houston office. Nursefinders has some as well. There are several agencies that staff for CMC.
