certifications for corrections

  1. I start my first job tomorrow in a local county jail. I am an LPN who graduated in August. I am wondering if there are any certifications that would be helpful for me to have. Thanks

    As a LPN you can take the CCHP exam, which is Certified Correctional Health Professional. It's a good exam and just the studying towards the cert I found benefical to my career. Go for it!

    how was the exam? any advice? im thinking of taking it in a couple weeks but might hold off to sit down and study study. but the next date wont be a long time from now so i might just cramm. (wanna know as much as i can, why not get certified along the way, right?) thanks in advance.
