Age Requirement for BOP?

  1. I have been an RN, BSN for over 20 years. I have never worked in corrections but due to a move that will place me close to a FCI in Cumberland, MD I am interested in a new career path. Is there an age limit for applicants with the BOP? I am 47 but in excellent health. Also, is it hard to get an interview/job with them?

    The age limit for Medical staff is waived. If you think it's something you really want to try, be advised that nothing happens fast in the Federal Gov't. I would advise going to and completing an application now. Also, being able to pass a background and credit check is more important than knowing anything about nursing. They never called one of my references from my nursing background when I hired in.
