Well, in May I am going up to Warren, Maine to interview for a full-time RN position at Maine State Prison. I'm very excited since I've been working LTC since I got out of nursing school
. The pay is good & the benefits are pretty great too (way better than what I'm getting here in western KY). I was just wondering if anyone here knew anything about the prison itself? I'm very excited but I won't get my hopes up too high until I actually go up there & see the place. I've been reading all the comments here about correctional nursing & it definitely sounds like a good career. Thanks for all the info. Hopefully, this will be a place where I will finally find my calling. LTC is not where I want to be. I've always wanted to be a trauma nurse & you do get some of that in the prison. Except you send them out asap! Anyway. wish me luck!
