    Hello all,
    I recently applied for and received an NPI number, and am signed to take some vent classes. What do I do next to become a private duty nurse in Wisconsin? Is there a website or some resources anyone can direct me too? I am interested in doing both adult and pediatric nursing at this time... Do I need to register with CMS or the State through DHFS? Thanks so much in advance!

    I worked for Ministry for 7 years...Did an internship in CCU, though that was before the nurse residency program. All I can say is that the RN's in CCU at that time were not very nice. The learning environment was poor, and if there were things I didn't know I was made to feel like an idiot if I didn't "get it" right away by a few of them. Mind you, this was in 2005, but I have heard from others that the climate there is poor.

    Hello all!! I have extensive experience in DD nursing, and am a Behavior specialist and QMRP. I was just offered 3 state jobs after interviewing, 2 of which are at correctional facilities...Stanley and Dodge. Anyone here know what these facilities are like?? Any thoughts on it? For the Dodge job, I would have to relocate 3 hours away, so am really struggling to know if I should take it or the Stanley job, which is only an hour commute one way!! I have no experience in correctional nursing, but am definitely interested...I was also offered a RN supervisor role that is more within my specialty field at Central Wisconsin Center. It is nice to be wanted but... Any advice is helpful. Thanks!

    I would say the bleeding one, based upon where the bleeding is coming from.

    I recently had an intervview for a nursing supervisor position at 2 correctional facilities... Although the postings said they would hire after the interview, I was asked to have a meeting with the Warden and another Nursing Coordinator now. Any thoughts? Is this a 2nd interview? I am awre that they did check references, so am hopeful, but wondering....!

    Questions were all related to dealing with employee conflict issues, though there was a general one about suicidal inmates (psych 101 stuff) and a difficult charting scenario question. I will post it tomorrow. Thanks for all the help!

    I have an interview for a Nursing Supervisor position for a few correctional facilities here in Wisconsin coming up!! I am so excited...I have not done correctional nursing, but have a lot f experience with very violent individuals, as I am a Program Director for high behavioral homes working with DD individuals. I am a Behavior Specialist and QMRP, and have a lot of management experience...Any suggestions, other than the awesome ideas already posted?

    Also...forgot to mention. I have a disorderly conduct on my record. Is there any chance I can still get the job? It was 3 years ago.

    Thank you all so much for the excellent feedback...After reading through these forums a bit, I am a little scared of a DON role. But it's worth a shot--I'm always up for new challenges!

    Hi all! I have been in the management field for the past 4 years. My primary background was working in a supervisory role at a managed care organization, leading the teams of social worker's and RN's. I have also been a program director for group homes, and as such, managed unlicensed personnel. I have extensive experience in writing policies and procedures, working with "the state," marketing, and managing staff issues...However, my only LTC experience was years ago as a CNA. Anyway, I applied for a DON job, and have an interview on Monday. I'm so excited, but am not quite sure where to begin. I have reviewed Wisconsin CMS guidelines, PASSAR stuff, and the last survey. What info should I all be armed with to go in there and make a good impression? Thank you all in advance!
