certifications for corrections

    I start my first job tomorrow in a local county jail. I am an LPN who graduated in August. I am wondering if there are any certifications that would be helpful for me to have. Thanks

    As a LPN you can take the CCHP exam, which is Certified Correctional Health Professional. It's a good exam and just the studying towards the cert I found benefical to my career. Go for it!
