Yes, there's a huge need for nurses in corrections.  It's not hard to get hired as long as you can get security clearance.

Is it difficult getting hired o to corrections as a new grad?  Everywhere I read states the eligibility requires a couple years of nursing experience; in particularly in a specialty, plus certain certifications, etc.  

I will be graduating with an ADN from USC/LA County nursing school (LA County Hospital) and then I will have a BSN a year later.  

I would like to get my pension started.  Do I need to wait to apply until I have years experience? 

Did you just apply online as a random person? Did you follow up in person or over the phone? 
How long did it take to hear back once applying online?

I have a 1203.4 on my record, which is a dismissal from an old case decades ago.  County overlooks this.  Would federal?

Thank you!
