License on the line!!Register Today!
- by dlynn34LPN Jan 5Does anybody else fill that correctional nursing puts your nursing license on the line with doctor not really knowing their stuff and improper report or pass down?
- Jan 5 by Ruas61Could be any nursing speciality.
- Jan 6 by eatmysoxRNSorry to be petty, but that should be "feel" instead of "fill." Poor grammar makes nurses appear uneducated in my opinion.
If the physician in any area isn't up to par, it is simply your job to advocate and make suggestions. Use SBAR and always read back and question as necessary.

- Sep 16 by FindingmynitchI absolutely feel as though working in corrections puts one's license at risk in that many correctional nurses are encouraged to work outside of their scope of practice. Fortunately, I have worked with some very competent providers.

I have never been asked to do anything even remotely outside my scope.I absolutely feel as though working in corrections puts one's license at risk in that many correctional nurses are encouraged to work outside of their scope of practice.
- Sep 17 by FindingmynitchIt is nice to know such places in corrections exist.
- Sep 17 by OrcaQuote from FindingmynitchYou have made several mentions in different threads about practicing outside of scope, but I haven't seen any examples. Can you give us an idea of what you're talking about? It seems a bit over the top that you throw that out there as if it is an undisputed fact across all of correctional nursing, which isn't so.It is nice to know such places in corrections exist.
