I have three upcoming interviews this week for correctional nursing positions in the northeast. I've only been a nurse in LTC for five months but I have my BSN and previous experience in psych during nursing school. I originally wanted to work in a hospital setting I would love to "pay my dues" doing that infamous 1 year of med surg but the hospitals around here aren't exactly hiring anyone without existing acute care experience.
Corrections nursing seems interesting so I might give it a shot. I was lucky to get that job that I have in the nursing home but it's not where I see myself in the future and (I don't know how safe my license will be working there as things are right now).
So what should I ask them? I can't have no questions during an interview, but I have never even been inside a prison before. One is the women's prison, one is a level 3, and one is a level 4 ; the information about the prisons on the state website is minimal at best.
Also is it true that an under-wire bra will set off the metal detector? I am kind of big busted and really only have under-wire bras. Only one of the places said that i shouldn't wear anything with metal in it but the woman didn't specify, she just said that once her shoes set off the detector; but I've gone through metal detectors at the air port without any problems.
Anyways would be really embarrassing having to go through a professional interview without wearing a bra.
