I've got an interview in a week from now for a per diem position at SF county jail number 5. This would be my first job out of nursing school (UPenn's second degree program). I was hoping I could contact you to briefly chat about what lies ahead (interview and job scope). I'm excited to experience prison nursing and I think I will subtly enjoy the challenge.
