After skulking around the Corrections section of allnurses.com for ages I finally applied and got hired into one of my State prisons (it took roughly 3 months). Thank you all for posting information about corrections interviews and sharing your experience of corrections nursing. I am so glad to be joining your ranks.

Good luck in your new position. IMO corrections is one of the hidden gems in nursing. Ironically, I went to nursing school
to get out of corrections (I had worked as an officer and a case manager, and I had worked for the parole board). A per diem position that I took in late 2000 brought me back behind the fences, which is apparently where I am supposed to be.
