I have been offered a job at a Prison in Texas. The medical management is the University of Texas Medical System. One reason I applied for the job is to move to the same town as my parents. My mother has breast cancer and I really wanted to be near her. There is a small hospital in the town that they live in but the pay and benefits are not nearly comparable as the prison position. I have several family members that work in the prison system in different capacities ( teacher, psychologist, corrections officer) and have been there for more than 15 years. The pay is much better than what I am making now in a hospital and the benefits are better. Does anyone have any experience in the UTMB system? Any advise to offer???
Or just advise on going into prison nursing???? I would appreciate any input.
