County Prison Nursing

  1. I am about to be interviewed for a position at a County Prison in Pennsylvania. Can anyone tell me the benefits of the County Prison system versus the State Prison system? How are the benefits in the two systems? I have been working in the State Prison system as a Temp and was just called by the prisons HR to set up an interview for a 2nd shift full time. The county job is M-F 8-4, no holidays or weekends.
    Thanks for the help.

    One thing to ask is if the nursing / medical services are contracted out, and to whom. PrimeCare Medical handles a lot of the correction facility staffing in South Central PA and other areas of PA.

    I got paid better & had better benefits when I worked at the state prison.
