New Correctional Nurse (Armor)

  1. Hello everybody in this specialty area .I have read so many of your posts ,they were very helpful in making my decision to put in an application for correctional nurse.

    I have a few questions that I and my family would like to know and maybe somebody already employed at this company can fill me in.

    1) I was hired per-diem,is that guaranteed every other weekend and could you tell me about how many shifts are offered to you weekly or monthly..on average.Would you recommend a p/t job on the side ?
    2)If you do well and stay with the company is there any chance of getting p/t or f/t? or a desired shift down the line?I hope they use in house employees for these open slots.
    3) Any benefits for per-diem? or p/t?
    4) Uniform...colors etc?
    How long is orientation and the hours?
    5)Is there a credit check!!??
    6) weekly or biweekly pay?
    And most importantly how do you like it and any advice at all would be great!?Thank you for reading my questions,just a little anxious regarding this decision.Hope I can help in the future.Sincerely Nsgluv

    Armor is the preeminent correctional healthcare company in America. County healthcare is obsolete, way too wasteful, and prohibitively expensive for the local municipalities. Get real and realize that inmate care HAS to be privatized to make it cost effective. GO ARMOR-- improve inmate care for less!!
