Florida Prisons

  1. I have been seriously contemplating applying for a prn position at one of the local prisons as I am looking to get back into more "traditional" nursing. I thought about the nearby hospitals but the pay isn't that great and the patient loads are very heavy. Has anyone here worked in or know anything about the state prison system? This position would be at the Reception and Medical Center most likely. Thanks in advance.

    I will take a guess that you are in Gainesville. You have the option of Alachua county jail, and not to far from gainesville, (probably a 30 min drive to Lowell women's prison and Marion correctional institute (men's prison) Good luck on what ever you decide and I believe you will be glad you chose to give corrections a try.
