    Did you end up applying to the Federal Bureau of Prisons? I am interested, and I just submitted all of my materials.

    From experience I can say that it takes a long time to land a fed position. What I was told was that the job opening is posted for a period of time and then once it closes it takes 6-8 weeks to even get a response. Once you are called for an interview it could take up to another 4-6 weeks to get the call for the job offer... I have been applying for fed positions for the last 8 months and have heard nothing as of yet. What I understand you just keep applying until you hear something. It just takes time.

    I saw an RN position opening for a fed prison here in NJ. How is it working in a fed prison? I'm thinking about applying. Just want some input first. I work at a hospital that has a seperate prison unit for state prisoners only. The federal inmates go on the regular floor with regular patients.

    Rats my comment just went into cyber space. i love working for the Bureau and have been in the system for 13 years. Call Ricky Galloway at 870-494-4210. He can give you tips for applying and getting hired. We still need 3 nurses here in Arkansas. I know we were hiring at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, MN. There is a Chemo center in Butner, NC. I love it, allways something different.
