    Quote from erroridiot
    It's hard to say about pay which varies even within regions. I would say that generally, correctional nursing pays less than even long term care nursing.

    Here I could work at a hospital for $2-4 dollars more per hour. I faxed my resume to a hospital several months ago and a nurse manager called me for an interview. Her first sentence was "So you work in a jail. Well, how do you like that?". This person then proceeded to burst out in hysterical laughter. I told her that I was very busy at my current job at the jail and made an appointment for the interview. I did not go to the interview and called to cancel 5 minutes prior to the appointment. She did not deserve a cancellation call, but I am too ethical to stand people up. I think that she just called me to make fun of someone so she could have a moment of superiority (all to herself, of course).

    I should have reported her to the administration of her "prestigious" hospital.
    You should have asked her why she was laughing.
