Hi. I just moved to Deltona, FL. I am an LPN that has worked many years in drug and alcohol inpatient rehab AND in corrections. I am looking to stay in these same fields. I was looking at the hiring process for Seminole county and man it seems intense. Is it as hard as it sounds? Anyone have any suggestions for jails/ prisons or drug/all rehab that are hiring near me? It's holiday time and I really do not want to apply somewhere that says it takes 3-4 months for the hiring process. Would love to hear from anyone that works in any of the facilities near me. Thanks

I worked at the Seminole County jail a couple of years ago. Their screening process is very thorough, that's why it takes a while. However, they have great benefits. Their schedule is setup in such a way that you work 7 days in a 2 week span. It repeats itself at the end of the 2 week pay period. This is great because you can plan your short vacations ahead of time and you are allowed to swap shifts if another nurse is willing/able to swap with you. There is also opportunity for overtime.
I left because I am an RN and was looking to expand my skills, but I loved the environment and how the Correctional Officers always had my back and each other. They usually have 4 nurses on each shift, plus one at Juvi. One MD, one DDS, and one Psychiatrist on staff. The Psychiatrist has 3 other people who report to her... all very nice people.
Like all places... it has its plus and minuses, but it's the one job I felt proud of being a part of.
