Can I work as a correctional Nurse?
- 0Jul 25, '11 by CaliNrseHello Everyone,
I would like to ask what the rule are when applying for correctional nursing. Are you able to apply and have a chance at being hired if someone you know is incarcerated in a california correctional facility?? Of course i live in Southern California but i have 2 family member that are incarcerated in a northern california prison. Will they still hire me in Southern california.. Please let me know if knowing a inmate can disqualify you from the position..

However, I think that is like in a personal capacity. You can't choose your family. I would suggest applying and being honest with them and the worst they can say is no.

There is a special form we are to fill out which basically ensures that he doesn't get sent to my unit. I guess it varies from state to state! Good luck!!
