Corrections interview..what to expect?

  1. Hi, I'm a new LPN & I have an interview Monday for a PRN position at a detention center. I don't really know what to expect in terms of questions..any advice from corrections nurses out there?

    Theres a thread on here that I used as a source of information. Very helpful. Can't find it right now for some reason but I'm sure with some digging you will; its about 10 pages long full of interview questions that were brought up. Most of them dealt with inmate behavior, triage assessments, safety issues/precautions and typical case scenarios (Trauma:Stabbing, MI, TB, Narc OD, etc). Combine ED/Public Health/Clinic knowledge and you will do just fine.

    Found it Common Correctional Nursing Interview Questions adding it just in case anybody needs to find it Wish it was a sticky; it was so helpful! I'll be pulling out my med-surg book this weekend & reviewing some things ;-)
