Just wanted to say thanks first off to all of these wonderful threads! I have been reading them vigorously trying to get an idea what it's really like to work with inmates and I'e really got some good information (more than anywhere else)...
Anyways, my question may be silly, but oh well, why not ask with all this wonderful advice. So.. I have an interview as a correctional nurse (RN) at Folsom Prison on Tues. morning. I'm not totally nervous (more kind of excited in a sick way and have no idea what to expect) but my question is, should I dress as if I were going to a regular interview? I am a nice looking woman, get hit on often (not to sound snobby AT ALL)... I am far from that... I just imagine that alone could be problematic in this area.
I wasn't planning on wearing a suit or anything, but a nice solid pastel button up with greay slacks and black 2" boots. I wear very little make-up, but do a little, especially if I dress it up for whatever reason (an interview)
Any other advice is appreciated.. although I think I'm probably better off just giving it my best without knowing what to expect or having expectations. I've read enough from these threads to give me a good idea of what they probably desire in a nurse on the actual job.
So, any advice on the interview dress code? Treat it as any other? Thanks
