Hello everyone (: In case we haven't met, I'm Brandy, an LPN. Check out my profile if you want, I've just come back to this site and know noone! ):
Anyway, my question to you:
Anyone here in NW Ohio/SE Michigan? I'm looking for a corrections position there. I am licensed in both states, and I have applied with Maxim Staffing who provides some corrections positions, as well as Manpower who does the same. Maxim is currently trying to get my fingerprints done and background check ran, Manpower just never has any openings close to me. ): I was at the Lenawee County Jail but had to leave. ): And state of Ohio has no LPN listings close to me. Boo! So does anyone else know how to get back into it?!
I would suggest applying directly to both Michigan and Ohio Department of Corrections. If no current openings are listed online, submit paper state applications(with cover letters and resumes and state locations of interest) to both departments. You would be placed in a pool of applicants to be considered as positions become available. The hiring process may take a little longer, but would probably be worth the wait for direct entry, training/orientation, salary and benefits. Also, apply directly with local county jails and sherriff departments for correctional nursing opportunities as well. Best wishes to you: )
