I recently became employed through a California state hospital, and plan to go back to school online and obtain my BSN (I currently have ADN).
After I obtain my BSN, is there any doctorate or masters program where I would benefit from the experience of government nursing/correctional nursing?
I guess my question is: What's next?
I'm in my mid-20s, and still planning on continuing my education.
Those of you with experience who have been doing this for a long time, where has correctional nursing or government nursing led you?
What doors has it opened for you, compared to acute care, critical care, or bedside nursing? I know some graduate nursing programs
require a certain number of med-surg experience, and I suppose that correctional nursing doesn't count in that regard.
thank you for your time~
