Applying as Registered Nurse in a Correctional Facility

by Marielle Marielle (New) New Nurse

Im a new grad. Only have 3 months experience as RN and im trying to apply as RN in a correctional facility. I was wondering How hard is the assessment exam for the registered nurse correctional facility in california? Any tip to prepare for the assessment exam prior taking the exam? Thank you.

I don't know about CA, but I worked corrections as a new grad and it was a good experience.  I got to see a lot of different conditions and learned to chart defensively, which has saved me a number of times even after I left corrections.
