I'd swear posted this question before but I came back to look and it's not here so.....Here goes......I've been working corrections for over 15 years( agency) and due to the privatization of the prisons in this area I'm short work. I'd love to take a travel position in corrections but have been unable to find a travel company that travels corrections......Does any one out there know of or work for a travel company that uses correctional nurses?

Well, you did post this question on the travel nursing AND agency nursing forums, but
I, too, remember someone else dealt with it and received a number of responses (but I can't find it either). So I don't think we are BOTH hallucinating the same thing.
It has been my experience that due to the varying "security" requirements of different jails and prisons, there is very little travel nursing done in this field.
However, someone else reported working as a traveling corrections nurse and mentioned the name of an agency, I believe. If I run into it, I'll pass it along.
Meanwhile, you might want to PM graybar hilton. It may be that if you work for one of the large private companies, like Wackenhut, you could travel around to their various facilities, I don't know, but he might.
