Correctional agency nurse,plsss help!!!!!!
- 0Jul 23, '11 by bluesky197868I got hired through agency to work in vacaville state prision starting next wk. I'm gonna have my orientation for bout 4 to 5 wks. That's gonna b everday from 8 to 5. Soooooo...... Which means I have to give up my other jobs for this prision job. My questions are
1. Am I gonna get lots hrs to work in prision after I'm done with my orientation? Since I have to give up my other two part time jobs for this one.
2. If my work performance is good, am I gonna have a chance to get hired by vacavlle prision directly through state? Since my name is already in prision system, my rank is 2.
This is a real hard decision to make , can anyone help me plssssss? I really.appreciated. Btw, my agency made it sound like they need lots lvns, and I can work many hrs..... Is.that true? Help me pls.....I'm really lost at this point!!!!!!!

- 0Jul 27, '11 by markpdavidI am on my 3rd day of agency RN correctional facility orientation have been told agency nurses more times than not get 40hrs/wk and several opportunities for overtime for CNAs/LVNs/RNs. Its a great opportunity and giving up other jobs is a risk with the possibility of gaining a great permanent job or at least great experience. I jumped at the chance. I will update with my experience after a couple of months of working at prison here in Southern California.
