Traveling correctional nurse??

  1. 0 Just got the thinking. Do you think it's possible to make a career of being a traveling correctional nurse? What I mean is bounce around the country living as a traveling nurse just taking correctional contracts. Are there a lot of these contracts available, enough to make a career of? Thanks for the help. I'm still in school, just kinda wondering.

    Mods if you think this is in the wrong section feel free to move it.

    I don't think you would be able to find work regularly enough as a traveling correctional nurse. I only know of some agencies in CA that staff RNs in the prisons/jails here but I have never heard of traveling agencies specializing in correctional nursing assignments.

    When I was vacationing in Hawaii I actually met some local nurses at breakfast buffet. They said they would love to have travelers in their county jail. I think you'll have to do some checking but I'll bet it's possible. Good luck!

    Try Supplemental Staffing, I have worked for them in the past and they were great to work for. I am not sure about experience needed as I have many years of correctional experience, but it is worth checking out!
