Hello ,

I am interested in acquiring info about corrections nursing in B.C {where I live} and Canada. I am hoping to find out about ; scope,safety and risks,benefits, likes and dislikes etc. I have already posted in the correction section with no answers. I live in B.C and am considering doing my preceptorship at the local jail,any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you

Here you go -- All federal agencies do fall under the Public Service Commission of Canada, btw.

An LPN/RPN friend of mine recently got hired on at Kingston Penitentiary (Ontario) - haven't talked to her recently to see how she's surviving the experience...

Good luck.
