Phyxius's Latest Activity

  1. I know our prison just hired a few more LVN's this past week, and still have a couple registry nurses working as well. CDCR is currently going through a massive re-alignment though so who knows whats coming down the line?

    Importance of patient/inmate education

    While I strongly agree with the latter part of that statement, I find the first part to be a dangerous generalization. For your own safety, and everyone around you, I would refrain from underestimating the I/P population in that manner.

    Opening capsules

    lol must be nice... Oftentimes the nurses at my facility are kind of left to fend for themselves while the officer's chit-chat in a nearby office. There is this huge "Us Vs. Them" mentality between the nurses and correctional staff, it's rather perplexing.

    Male nurse in corrections

    Guy here, never have problems with the inmates other than drug seeking behavior of some. Professionalism and assertiveness work wonders.

    Average Time After Application

    I just had my interview a couple days ago, thanks for asking! I feel it went well although it could have been better. I'm a new grad so definitely stumbled over my words when they asked about what experience I would bring... but I feel the rest of the interview went well and I was able to provide correct and well thought out answers to their little quiz they do (at least, in my own opinion.) Now, it's just a waiting game =)

    I didn't receive any calls but rather employment notices about two weeks later requesting I submit a std678 employment form... and then about a week after that I received an interview notice letter. Best of luck!
