    No problem, anjresident. If you're in a state prison then that's how it should work, unless they changed things. Good luck. It's not a bad job, so long as you're comfortable using your skills solo. They will give 20 shifts of orientation so use that to your advantage. You'll undoubtedly be the "compound nurse", overseeing the whole place!

    Just Google the NJ and PA board of nursing for licensure information. You can print out the applications there. Know that NJ is VERY slow, so start your application now. You'll need a passport photo. They'll want fingerprints, as well, but they'll send you that info when the time comes. All the info is there.

    This is the link for NJ prison jobs through Rutgers (they merged with UMDNJ). That's how I got my job. Select University Correctional health care under Facility. https://rutgers.hodesiq.com/apply_lo...hkJobCartJobs=

    Good luck!!!
