I just sat for and passed my LPN boards (but am continuing in an RN program starting during August) and I've begun applying for various LPN positions. I decided to submit an application for an LPN position at a maximum security prison in my state. To my surprise they called me twice today. I won't know any details until I attend the interview, however I am just wondering your opinions on a new LPN working in a prison. I do have experience in an acute health care setting as a PCT. Also, what is it like working there? Do you feel threatened by the inmates? I must admit a resident in a nursing home I just applied to plane creeped me out. I could see working in a prison being interesting - I bet you learn a lot.
