  1. Any Ironwood or Chuckawalla nurses here?

    Thanks DesertRN! At these two prisons, is there more than one RN on the night shift? Do they provide decent training for a new nurse? Is this night shift best for a new nurse (slower)? I appreciate your help. Thanks!
  2. What is better? 2nd or 3rd shift as a nurse in prison??

  7. Hi, Thanks for all of your messages! I found out which registry they use and filled out an application with them. They called me and said that you need at least one year of nursing experience to work for the registry. Bummer!
  8. Thank you all for your responses. I was under the impression that you still needed many volunteers. For now, I will send a donation through the Red Cross. There are still over 400 missing, which is heartbreaking. I'll be thinking of those in the affe...

    I'm going to call the prison today to request a tour of the facility. I'm hoping that by meeting some of the nurses, they may put in a good word for me! What should I wear when I show up for the tour? A pant suit? In this situation, I'm not sure what...
