    Have you thought about MHM, they provide the psy services for many state prisons. I know alabama and georgia are two of several. I work in alabama. It is great. You deal with the i/m that are on the mental health unit. I am a LPN.

    As a staff nurse for CMS all I can say is that the care which is given to the inmates is only as good as the nurse who is giving it.

    I too work for CMS in a county jail. I have been here 4 years and I love it. You can find lousy nursing any where you go, I think it just depends on the Nsg. admin. If they let people slide at their work you end up with work not getting done and the inmates suffer for it.. Wages here are in line with the LTC facilitys for LPNs. It does take a while to get used to the not showing you care etc. because soooo many of these guys are just looking for a reaction..

    I had my interview. It went very well. The only problem I had was asking if I minded working M-F 12 hours each day. So I turned down the offer of a second interview.

    Otherwise, the job itself looked really good.

    I recently began working at a PHS facility in VT. It is a new experience for me and I agree that every company has it's policies and procedures and expectations. it is all in howyour managers set the tone
